Find Every Deduction and Set Your Business up for Success with TurboTax Self-Employed

The gig economy is one of the fastest growing segments as more and more people are turning their side hustle into a business. I should know because I did exactly that. Years ago when the economy was struggling, the company I worked for just cut my position in the company. At the time, I had my side hustle and I was devoting some time to it. I was doing pretty well. However that layoff? It jumpstarted what has really been the absolute best decision of my life. I hope that you enjoy this Find Every Deduction and Set Your Business up for Success with TurboTax Self-Employed post.

This freelance thing is not without its challenges. Tracking my finances is a huge deal because I need all of that financial information for the next year. Up until last year, I wasn't so great about keeping track of my expenses but with TurboTax Self-Employed, they make it easy to know what is deductible. For instance, that rideshare that I took to a business event? It's deductible. I had no idea. Those tolls on the way to the airport and the parking at the airport for a press trip? Yeah…deductible. There are millions of self-employed individuals and TurboTax Self-Employed gives you the tools that you need to automatically find industry-specific business deductions and expenses PLUS you get on-demand access to real CPAs with TurboTax Live Self-Employed.
