One of the best ways to experience tax relief and avoiding the crunch comes tax time is to make sure to save your quarterly taxes up. You don't necessarily need to pay your taxes quarterly. The IRS has systems in place that will allow you to pay taxes even monthly if you'd like to do that, so that you don't end up writing a check for thousands of dollars to the Internal Revenue Service by the time the quarter's end comes around.
I'm a freelancer, and working with quarterly taxes is a difficult transition when you've received a W-2 and been paying taxes only few owed at the end of the tax year. It's also a little painful not to receive a tax refund that first year, but it really isn't going to set you that far back if you plan ahead and know what you're facing. Some people even save 30 to 40% of their entire income is freelancers in case there are issues with the Internal Revenue Service.
Another way you can experience tax relief is to make sure that you're writing off any applicable expenses as a freelancer. Pretty much anything becomes a business expense when you're running your own business or working out of your home. Part of your rent or mortgage payment, dinners you have out where you discuss business even if you're only out with your significant other are expenses, and even clothes that you buy, gas mileage, or items that you buy and use for work are deductible. You can also deduct a portion of your phone bill and Internet service, and any computers, software and related devices. You'd really be surprised at the amount of things you can deduct as part of your expenses at the end of the tax year.
You can also claim any tax preparation software or professional hires as expenses. If you buy a new car for your business, you can deduct certain costs associated with that car for the business.
Based on your last year's income, you will need to make a quarterly tax payment based on the estimated taxes you owe. If you call an IRS representative, he or she can help you by giving you instructions on how to deduce that amount. You can also check out plenty of free Internet resources that will help you understand more about estimated tax payments, and the anticipated tax you owe when tax time comes around.
Being a freelancer might be scary, particularly if you've never done it before. Don't let your quarterly tax payment come out of nowhere. As a freelancer, you need to be proactive about saving receipts and claiming expenses as well as working on paying your estimated quarterly taxes on time.
