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.
