Self-employment Tax Definition

A tax that self-employed people have to pay to cover their Social Security taxes. When people are employed, their employer pays half of the Social Security tax; if a person is self-employed, he or she has to pay the entire amount. The self-employment tax is currently around 15 percent, but is usually adjusted every year.
