How do I file taxes when I drive for a local company and am an independent contractor
As far as the IRS is concerned, money earned as an independent contractor is self-employment income. So all income earned and all expenses incurred as such will be reported on SCH C as a part of your personal 1040 tax return.
If using the CD/Desktop version of TurboTax you will need at least the Premier version. If using the online version of TurboTax, you will have to use the Self-Employed version. (More costly)
