Blogging entails a number of benefits for people who love writing and are comfortable being self-employed. The benefits include zero hassles associated with reaching office on time to the flexibility to set your own hours. Bloggers still have tax obligations like people in other professions. The difference is that, as a self-employed person, no one withholds your taxes and, unlike in the case of traditional employees, you owe self-employment taxes. Self employed people, such as bloggers, can also claim certain deductions to reduce their tax obligations. An experienced tax lawyer or CPA can help provide more information on all tax obligations you have as a blogger, and the deductions you are entitled to claim. In the meantime, let’s learn a bit more about the subject in this blog post.

Estimated Taxes

Bloggers, unlike traditional employees, must pay estimated taxes to the IRS on a quarterly basis. The due dates for estimated taxes are April 15, June 15, September 15, and January 15 (holidays excluded). If you fail to pay estimated taxes before the due date, you will have to bear tax penalties. There are certain conditions under which you can, however, avoid estimated tax obligations, such as when you think that you will not be able to earn at least $1,000, or if you did not have any taxes due the previous year. To get more tips and help with such IRS tax matters, get in touch with a reputable tax attorney.

Self-Employment Taxes

According to the IRS, being a blogger is akin to running your own business. Even if you are a part-time blogger, you owe self-employment taxes on whatever income you earn from your work. The self-employment tax is the total of Medicare and Social Security taxes, which both, the employee and the employer are obliged to pay to the IRS. Professional bloggers must pay both portions of the self-estimated tax. Bloggers are liable for self-employment tax, regardless of whether or not they owe any federal income tax.

Non-Taxable Expenses

While bloggers have to pay self-employment taxes, the IRS allows them to deduct a number of expenses from their income that are deemed reasonable, allowing them to reduce their taxable income. These expenses include office furniture, advertising, insurance, electronics, supplies, or other goods and services that are part of their business. If you work from home, the IRS may also allow you to deduct some of your household expenses such as utilities and rent.

Any blogger looking for tax deductions must first prove to the IRS that their blogging business is genuine. One way to prove this is to earn a profit. If you show that you earned a profit in at least three out of the previous five tax years, it is proof that you are running a bona fide business.    If you owe the IRS and are in need of an attorney call The Law Offices of Nick Nemeth at(972) 426-2553.  Or for a free tax analysis, click here, and we will get back to you shortly.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
