Self-Employed?

If I tutor, is that considered self-employment on the CSS profile?

    If you make enough money to file tax returns on your tutoring income -- then you should file the appropriate form with IRS (Schedule C or C-EZ) and list yourself as having income from self-employment.

    If you don't meet that threshold, then I don't think you should mention it. If you say you are self-employed, they are going to want to see a schedule C. (I believe the threshold is earning $400 or more ... you might want to double check. I'm self employed, but I earn 5 figures so its been a long time since I ever had the option of not filing a return).
