Navigating taxes for your creator income

Any money you earn as a content creator, including tips, is subject to the same taxes as a regular job. This is because itโ€™s considered self-employment income, meaning itโ€™s money you earn from working that isnโ€™t a wage. As a result, youโ€™ll need to pay income and self-employment taxes on it.

Maximize your tax deductions

Keep more of what you earn while staying compliant.

๐Ÿ‘ Expenses you can write off

As a content creator, you can write off certain expenses on your taxes to lower your taxable income. These expenses must be โ€œordinaryโ€ and โ€œnecessaryโ€ for your business.

These include:

๐Ÿ“ฑ Cell phone bill ๐Ÿ’ป Computer or laptop ๐Ÿ“ธ Camera & equipment ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Editing software ๐Ÿช‘ Home office deduction ๐Ÿฅ Content accessories ๐ŸŒŽ Internet or Wi-Fi ๐Ÿจ Hotels or Airbnbโ€™s ๐Ÿš— Mileage ๐Ÿ’„ Stage Make-up and beauty supplies ๐Ÿ’ต Commissions ๐Ÿงพ Contractor payments ๐Ÿ’ฒ Platform fees

๐Ÿ‘Ž Expenses you canโ€™t deduct
