This is great site offering tax tips for translators in the US written by a former H&R Block employee who prepared actual tax returns for freelance translators. The author provides a complete scenario involving the work of a fictitious translator (ex. Mary earns 55,000 and pays $15,000 in income tax without deductions and $10,000 with deductions). The articles originally appeared in the ATA Chronicle:

New tax laws for 2018 Nov 1, 2018

Since this zombie post was resurrected, I would like to warn the above poster that the tax laws have changed for 2018. Starting in 2018, everyone gets a straight 12,000 income tax deduction.

And for anyone else who may be reading this and may have panicked after viewing the new "postcard" size 1040 form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-dft/f1040--dft.pdf

Don't worry,

Don't worry, all the standard business deductions (health premiums, 1/2 of self-employment tax, etc.) are now reported on a separate form (tentatively called Schedule 1) and the total from that form is entered onto the 1040 form. Link to draft of schedule 1: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-dft/f1040s1--dft.pdf

So basically, they have just taken lines off the main form and made sepearate forms (6 of them) for everything and this is somehow more convenient.
