I am one of those people that put off doing my tax return until the very last minute. In fact, I'm actually writing this blog post instead of finishing off my taxes, which (if you weren't aware) is due in on the 2831st of this month. Like I said, big procrastinator over here. Can you blame me? Taxes are boring - not to mention hard. I think the hardest part about doing your own taxes when you're some kind of online influencer is knowing what you can actually write off as expenses. Self employed builders deduct building supplies, drivers deduct mileage, but what about bloggers? Our jobs pretty much consist of showing off our lives on the internet. So surely we can write off anything. Designer bags, Instagram-able meals out, luxury spa days. Right? Right!? Well, actually - you kind of can. Maybe not the designer bags and fancy meals, but there are definitely a lot of things bloggers can justify as expenses. Of course, this isn't about scamming the tax man - but when you're self employed every expense adds up. So keep your receipts and take note of some of these tax deductibles. You're welcome.
