Friends with Tax Benefits is a 12-episode conversational-style podcast. Each episode, our hosts, Lauren Thomas, Katharina Reekmans, and Daniel Thrall, get three minutes to dish out real and actionable tips in our ‘3 for 3,’ as well as answer commonly asked questions Q&A style. Believe it or not, these friends know how to make personal finance fun. This first episode is all about the Creator Economy – aka influencers – and what it means for creators’ taxes when they start earning money with their social feeds. That’s right… when you start earning income, it has to be reported on your tax returns! So, what does that mean for the creator? It means you are technically self-employed! So it’s time to get serious about how you manage income and expenses. Spending money for your small business (Hello, makeup influencers trying out the latest products to review!) means you can potentially claim the expense as a tax deduction. Start keeping your receipts, and stay on top of those quarterly estimated tax payments. Listen to the full episode today. Join Kat, Lauren, and Daniel as they explore this topic in depth, offer their personal experiences and perspectives, and Kat, our resident tax expert, answers questions directly from creators. For even more info about the Creator Economy, don’t forget to read our new blog that answers creators’ burning questions. Have a question for our Friends with Tax Benefits team?
