Filing Taxes

Back to learn

I’ve been a freelancer for a few years and I’ve never filed my taxes. Am I going to jail?

Rounding it up

  • Make tax season easier for your freelancer soul by starting early and thinking ahead with the right documentation.

  • Mind the details; don’t forget about recurring expenses that are automatically deducted, like design software for artists. These matter!

  • Missing a year of filing happens to the best of us, but don’t fear the late file. The penalties might be frightening but the solution is simple: just file your taxes.

  • Get backup when you need it; most online tax filing programs are not optimized for freelancers so it’s best to hire an accountant who’s well-versed in freelancer taxes.
