A sample of a self-employment ledger can be downloaded from the South Dakota website in portable document file (PDF) format. It should be noted that there is no official self-employment form or ledger, and any document that clearly breaks down an individual's income and expenses is essentially a self-employment ledger, notes the Trout Insurance website.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires self-employed taxpayers to provide a self-employment ledger to verify their income. A self-employment ledger will also be helpful when applying for health care coverage through the Marketplace. The information from the ledger will help determine if the applicant qualifies for a lower health care coverage cost, as stated on Healthcare.gov.
