A good CPA is what you need. They can answer all your questions. Basically you pay the same taxes as if you were employed and received a W2. The big difference is ss/medicare/medicade along with some minor differences. You have to match that 7.65% for a total of 15.3%. Federal is based on adjusted gross income/10%,25%,35% or38%.
You don't file seperate returns just one 1040,1040schedule c.
A good CPA is worth their weight in gold.
