Hello Phil et al-

You mentioned publication 560 to get info on self-employed retirement plans, but can you tell me the pub for instructions on what to do with income from a side job where no taxes or anything have been withheld?

Someone I know has worked outside their day job for a company that has not collected any income tax, FICA, or OASDHI from the side-earned wages. I understand from the previous poster that Schedule SE has to be filed to pay SS tax on the side income (I think), but what else?

I thought that merely by adding the W-2 wages from the side job to AGI would cause the appropriate tax to be charged from the look-up in the tables in the booklet. I forgot about SS...

Sorry for the dumb question, but any further info on what must be done in this situation would be greatly appreciated - I don't think the TMF tax book covered this situation, but that's going purely from memory-

Thanks in advance -
