If you were self-employed in 2020 and/or 2021, you could potentially qualify for the Self Employment Tax Credit. This includes sole proprietors who run businesses with employees, 1099 subcontractors, and single-member LLCs. Almost anyone with schedule C income qualifies. However, Sub S or True S Corps/C Corps remain exempt from this provision. This refundable tax credit is worth up to $32,220, and individuals receive nearly $10,000 on average.
