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 it’s considered self-employment income, meaning it’s money you earn from working that isn’t a wage. As a result, you’ll need to pay income and self-employment taxes on it.

Maximize your tax deductions

Keep more of what you earn while staying compliant.

👍 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 “ordinary” and “necessary” for your business.

These include:

📱 Cell phone bill 💻 Computer or laptop 📸 Camera & equipment 👩‍💻 Editing software 🪑 Home office deduction 🐥 Content accessories 🌎 Internet or Wi-Fi 🏨 Hotels or Airbnb’s 🚗 Mileage 💄 Stage Make-up and beauty supplies 💵 Commissions 🧾 Contractor payments 💲 Platform fees

👎 Expenses you can’t deduct

Some expenses cannot be written off because they are considered strictly personal.

These include:

☀️ Tanning services 🪒 Hair removal services 🧔‍♂️ Facials 💇‍♀️ Haircuts and styling 🧴 Skincare products 🦎 Tattoos 🏃‍♂️ Personal trainers 🏋️‍♀️ Gym memberships 👗 Clothing 🍳 Supplements 👄 Botox or lip fillers 💄 Makeup 🦷 Teeth whitening or dental work 💅 Nail care 👙 Breast implants 💉 Other plastic surgery
