Before you sign up for anything, make sure to do your own research.
Whether you work a side hustle in addition to a full-time job or juggle multiple part-time gigs, your earnings are taxable.
Not only that, but you need to report your earnings from a side hustle or freelance job differently than you report standard income.
A Form 1040 is required for those with multiple sources of income, as you have to list all your income on a single form.
In addition, you'll need to file a Schedule C and a Form SE to report your self-employment taxes.
If you have multiple streams of income, speaking to a tax professional can help you sort out what forms you need to submit and how to properly fill them out.
The additional income may also move your household into a different tax bracket, which will impact how much you have to pay the IRS.
Working a side hustle does allow you to claim more exemptions on your taxes, however, as you can report your expenses for potential tax deductions.
You'll need to have proof of the money you spent on your side hustle though, so make sure to keep any relevant receipts for tax season.
