Self-employment tax is the tax paid on the income earned by an independent or sole proprietor who earns self-employed income without being associated with any organization. Self-employed people work for themselves in various industries such as trading, commission-based work, freelancing, teaching, fitness coaching, designing, and many more. In India, everyone who earns an annual income of more than 2.5 lakh in India is liable to pay income tax regardless of the person is employed with a company or is self-employed. Often, self-employed individuals fail to file taxes due to a lack of financial process. It is recommended for liable individuals ti stay tax-compliant and file returns.
