10 Tax Deductions Freelancers Can Make

by Thursday Bram

The article is directed mainly to the US freelancers but it also includes links to other countries:


Australian Taxation Office (Business Deductions)


UK Revenue and Customs (Small Business Topics)


Canada Revenue Agency (Small Business Topics)
