Tax season is officially underway and sometimes this can be overwhelming, especially if you’re an independent contractor. We can probably all agree…taxes are no fun, however, they are part of life as a business owner. There are so many things to take into account that can impact the way you file and how much money you may be entitled to (or expected to pay). You’ll need to file a tax return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) if your net earnings from self-employment are $400 or more. Along with your 1040 form, you’ll file a Schedule C to calculate your net income, also known as the loss for your business. You can file a Schedule C-EZ form if you have less than $5,000 in business expenses.
