Home offices have become commonplace. 

As a freelancer, are you tracking your expenses for possible tax deductions?

  • Home heating
  • Electricity
  • Water
  • Rent/mortgage
  • Office repairs
  • Cell phone bills

Every item you purchase for your job should be documented:

  • Computers, video cameras, steno machine, paper, pens, envelopes, postage stamps, exhibit stickers, any additional office supplies, etcetera.  

Talk to your accountant to see if your expenses qualify.

  • Set aside 30% of your income for quarterly tax payments!  

Don’t stress at tax time, be prepared with good recordkeeping to make the process a breeze and ensure you’re getting the most out of your freelance business.

  • Are you registered to receive deposition service assignments directly by law firms?
