So this year i got a 1099 misc form for doing work over the summer. Now it states my income under "non employee compensation". By following the IRS tax book, it claims that i am self employed, thus have to pay like 450 bucks in SE tax, however i don't have a company!!! What should i do about this? I fall under the $8750 limit to not have to file a tax return, but did not get my income from a W2. This is all messed up and could use some help.
