Let’s start with - what are you attempting to accomplish?

IRS send a letter saying we probably owe SE tax and asking for the schedule.

So you are a DIYer?
I suggest seeking professional assistance. If you used TurboTax.. don't they offer audit assistance?

Former Chump... umm.... AllStar.

Did you get a 1099MISC and reported the income as Other Income, rather than self employment income?

That'd be a good guess, IMHO.

You can go to Forms, then print the page.  It'll only populate with the client info unless there are numbers flowing from somewhere to generate SE tax.

I'm with Jeff tho - why?  Is this a lender request?  If so, then tell the idiotic underwriter NO !

I remember a client receiving a notice like that when there had been an other income entry on Line 21 for executor fees.  We had to explain that this was a first and last time as an executor and not the client's business.  The IRS responded that that was a sufficient explanation but I have been very careful to expand on the information on Line 21 after that experience.
