The first tip Ellis provides is to keep paperwork organized. Important documents should be readily available so they are easy to find when it's time to file taxes.

The types of paperwork needed are explained. These are important for claiming deductions, the article says. Taxpayers need information such as proof their home is used for business, vehicle expenses, and a list of the equipment they use such as computers. Educational expenses and website design and hosting fees should be documented and saved as well.
Deductions are important to keep track of. The author also says freelancers should be aware of eligibility for credits, while he also emphasizes the importance of write offs. Ellis stresses that freelancers can keep more of their hard earned money by knowing the right credits and deductions to claim.
