tax tips for internet marketers
When you make money via your Internet Marketing efforts that money counts as income. That
income needs to be reported to the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE and you need to pay taxes
on it. Unfortunately, money acquired on the net isn't tax free. Don't trust anybody who claims
otherwise. After all, you don't wish to find yourself in trouble with the IRS do you? There are
certainly not a number things which are worse than getting audited! Obviously, if you haven't ever
had to take care of your own taxes before now, mastering how to account for your income and
expenses and the amount that you owe can be really confusing. Here are a number of points
which will help you.

The most significant thing you must do is keep income records. The files need to have a great
deal of details in them. Write down every single payment you get, who paid it to you and what the
payment is for. The date has to be included for each transaction as well. These records can be
kept in a home accounting program like QuickBooks or feel free to use a system that you set up
yourself. Some individuals find a fairly easy Excel spreadsheet works best for them. Do not get rid
of these types of records after you file your tax return. It is essential that you keep them around
for a minimum of three or four years just in case an IRS agent wants to see them. Some may say
that, after a few years, if you haven't already been audited, you will possibly be fine but double
check the rules for your own state before you toss anything.

Keep all of your bills and invoices on your expenditures. In INTERNET MARKETING a lot of
things can be deducted for business purposes. The expense of managing your website, for
example is usually tax deductible. You could also usually deduct the money you spend on your
office supplies. Have you attended a conference this year? Ask if you can deduct your traveling
expenses and the cost of the conference. You could also deduct some of the money that you pay
every month for your internet connection. It is important to keep records and copies of all of your
receipts and payments so that you can prove what you have spent.
Pay taxes over the course of the entire year. Internet Marketing is formally considered freelance
work and freelancers often pay their taxes quarterly so that, when the end of the year arrives, they
do not owe as much. A great rule of thumb is 30% of your revenue for that quarter. The IRS has a
program set up now that will even let you make payments each month. Keep records of how
much you pay in. When you deliver your taxes in for the year, if you have overpaid, you will be
given a refund for that amount!
There are lots of methods to make your taxes easier to handle when you work in Internet
Marketing. The IRS site is filled with beneficial tips that you can use to make your book keeping
and tax preparation tasks easier. If you are generating enough money to do so, you could
potentially even hire an accountant to take care of almost everything for you.
