‘Tis the season – tax season, that is. If you’ve been following me, you know that taxes are kind of my hobby horse. One of the biggest problems for freelancers is that our taxes are ridiculously complex, but we don’t get any compensation for pain and suffering. I tried to remedy that a few years ago by invoicing President Obama for the time I spent filing taxes. (See below)
He didn’t bite.
Now that we’ve had the most sweeping tax “reform” in thirty years, you’d think I’d be golden. Well, it really didn’t really work out. We shall see if the Trump administration is more receptive to my work…
In the meantime, if you’re struggling with your own taxes, you still have two days to send them in or file for an extension. And if you’re completely baffled, may I recommend my post from last year: Taxes for Freelancers.
