FAQ's for Blogger Tax Write Offs
These are the most frequently asked questions as it pertains to bloggers and tax write offs. As I mentioned earlier, I’m not a tax professional so it’s best to ask your accountant or check local tax laws in your region to determine if these answers are applicable to your unique business situation.
Can bloggers write off vacations?
The IRS has specific requirements that dictate whether you’re blog is a hobby or business. Business expenses, such as a “vacation” must be considered ordinary and necessary as part of the functioning of your business to qualify as a write off in most situations.
How do taxes work for bloggers?
The best way to handle taxes as a blogger who makes a decent income each quarter is to pay in as you go. The United States tax system works on a “pay as you go” scenario. When you work for an employer as an employee, the taxes are taken out of each paycheck.
As a blogger, you’ll be in charge of paying estimated taxes. If you start to earn enough money that your children and other write offs won’t ensure you don’t have to pay in a ton of cash, then you’ll need to consider paying in estimated taxes on the IRS Government website.
Are write offs tax deductible?
A write off is an expense that you’ll list as part of your costs to run a business. Appropriate tax write offs will reduce the amount of taxable income you have at the end of the year.
It’s best to meet with your accountant or study the tax laws in your local region to know how write offs are handled, and how many write offs you should have annually to help offset income and run business smoothly.
