question about tax?

  • Does anyone know any resource on paying tax as an illustrator. Such as what are some reasonable and legit compensation that I can write-off, besides material and book cost, etc. It is almost tax season again, and tax in the U.S. for self-employed is ridiculously high, 40%-50% of my income goes to all kinds of tax directly. I wonder if I ever missed something that perhaps can be written-off, or if there is any article or resource that helped you on preparing for tax.

    Thanks much!

  • Pay the $100 for an initial meeting with an accountant. They will save you that much in taxes.

  • @jimsz Thanks! Do you mean they will save a couple of hundred dollars or thousands of dollars ? Has anyone compared accountant and using Turbo Tax ?
