Questions about 1099 Taxes

Good Morning -
Just have a quick question about paying taxes when you are 1099 employee.

I currently have a fulltime W4 job, however I have recently also taken a part time job on the side that pays me about $500 a week through a 1099 form. I'm trying to determine how much I should set a side every week to pay for taxes. From reading online im getting the idea that I should be saving about 25% + 15% self employment tax every week (total 40%?). So basically I should save about $200 a week out of $500 in order to pay taxes. Does that sound right? I've never had any jobs in which I was a 1099 employee.

It is similar to the Social Security and Medicare taxes withheld from the pay of most W2 employees. The self-employment tax rate for self-employment income earned in calendar year is 15.3% (12.4% for Social Security and 2.9% for Medicare). For self-employment income earned in 2014, the self-employment tax rate is 15.3%. The rate consists of two parts: 12.4% for social security (old-age, survivors, and disability insurance) and 2.9% for Medicare (hospital insurance).however, you can deduct 50% of the self employment tax on your 1040.As a 1099 worker on your 1099 income, If you are filing as a sole proprietor and/or a self-employed individual, you generally have to make estimated tax payments if you expect to owe tax of $1K(after your credits/ tax withheld) or more when you file your return;but You do not have to pay estimated tax for the current year if you had no tax liability for the prior year; You were a U.S. citizen or resident for the whole year; Your prior tax year covered a 12 month period.However many 1099 workers do not pay estimated taxes UNLESS their 1099 income is very high due to lower interest/penalties in general but it depends on your 1099income.

So basically I should save about $200 a week out of $500 in order to pay taxes. Does that sound right? ==============>>>>>>>As mentioned above;
