Despite politicians’ pledges to simplify taxes, recent changes have done the opposite. Historically, freelancers, from writers to Lyft drivers, needed to track income, expenses, and mileage. Now they also need to understand forms 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC, W-9, and 1099-K, depreciation versus expenses rules, home office rules, mileage qualifications, qualified business income deduction (QBID), retirement options, and more. Authors even have a few special court cases about their work. These topics will be presented in a way laypersons can understand. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and there may be a few that are answered with something other than “that depends.”
