Hey Freelancers, It’s Tax Season—Here’s How to Deal

Hey Freelancers, It’s Tax Season—Here’s How to Deal

Hallmark would like us to believe that April beckons the arrival of spring flowers, Easter eggs, and time spent with loved ones.

In the adult world, however, April exists for one reason and one reason only—so “The Man” can take all of your hard earned money in the form of taxes. (A bit dramatic, sure—but hey, we’re stressed, okay?)

When I started my freelance writing business, I was so focused on finding clients, taking on exciting projects, and making money, I let my first tax season as a business owner float to the back of my mind. Like, wayyy back. And while no disasters occurred as I kept the necessary forms organized, and had saved plenty of money to cover any taxes I needed to pay, there were some big lessons I learned—ones that I’m not planning on repeating this year.
