Should I write "Self Employed" or "Company name" on Form N400

Hi everyone, I have a question about employment section on the form.


I worked full-time as self-employed during OPT in Dallas,TX (after graduating from school and receiving work authorization) without forming an LLC (I was a sole-proprietor, contractor) and become LPR in 2013. Back then, I was always approved for this work and kept everything reported to my school and worked with an EAD card(Work authorization). Now I'm applying for naturalization. During that year, I only worked for one LLC company. I received 1099 (as tax form) from that LLC and filed and paid my taxes.  For that specific year and company, in the employment section, Should i enter the company's name that I worked for or "self employed" on form N400?

Part 8. Information About Your Employment and Schools You Attended List where you have worked or attended school full time or part time during the last 5 years. Provide information for the complete time period. Include all military, police, and/or intelligence service. Begin by providing information about your current and most recent employment, studies, or unemployment, if applicable. Provide the locations and dates where you worked, were self-employed, were unemployed, or have studied during the last 5 years. If you worked for yourself, write “self-employed.” If you were unemployed, write “unemployed.”
