When I work on a 1099, I put aside a third of the check for taxes - and
usually add a little more. for example, if the gross is, say, $1000, I'll
probably set aside $350. I also set aside another 20% for retirement
savings; by the time all the business deductions are taken out, it usually
comes out about right.

Does anyone know what employment tax (Social Security and Medicare) a person
pays on 1099 work?
Would I be responsible for the entire approximate 15 percent? If so, does a
person get half back when completing a Schedule C at tax time?
