I operate a business, where I create letters, following a specific set of instructions, for my customers to submit, in order to get Unbanned from video games they play. For example: A customer of mine would get banned from a video game World of Warcraft, and would contact me, for my methods to help appeal their ban through the support staff at World of Warcraft. I create the letter, provide it to the customer, and they submit it to the game provider.
In the past 5 months, I have earned roughly $20,000 income
from doing this. I am wondering if there is a list of ways I can cut the taxable income
, or find expenses that I could pay, that would lower the amount of taxes
I must pay at the end of the year. I operate this from my house, on a laptop. Because I don't actually have an office, is there anything I can do to use my work income, to pay off things, and make it business expenses
