A study by The Freelancers Union found that 35% of freelancers need help understanding and paying taxes, while 73% do not deduct any expenses. Some of the top challenges freelancers and self-employed individuals face when doing their taxes include the following:
- Understanding the tax code. The U.S. tax code is complex and challenging to understand, with many rules and regulations for self-employed individuals. This complexity can lead to mistakes on tax returns, resulting in penalties and interest.
- Keeping track of expenses. Self-employed individuals must track their business expenses, which can be time-consuming and tedious. However, accurately tracking business expenses is crucial as they can be deducted from income, lowering tax liability.
- Making estimated tax payments. Freelancers and self-employed individuals need to make estimated tax payments throughout the year, which can be challenging for those with irregular incomes. Deadlines for making estimated quarterly tax payments are June, September, and January of the following year. If a freelancer anticipates owing $1,000 or more in taxes for the year, they should make estimated quarterly tax payments. Failure to do so may result in penalties and interest charges. Therefore, accurately estimating tax liability and making timely payments is essential.
- Filing tax returns on time. The deadline for self-employed individuals to file tax returns in the U.S. is April 15th. If more time is needed, a tax filer can file an extension.
