San Jose, CA, United States, 25th Aug 2022, King NewsWire — FlyFin, a human plus A.I.-powered tax prep and tax filing service, released a financial report on American freelancers. Titled “The Financial Lives of America’s 59 Million Freelancers and Self-employed,” the report takes a closer look at the financial aspects of freelance and self-employed work in America. Using data from the latest industry-wide IRS tax years 2019 and 2020, and data from users of the FlyFin A.I. tool, the report provides valuable insights into the earnings and taxes of American freelancers. In 2021, freelance workers pumped $1.3 trillion annual earnings into the U.S. economy – $100 million more than the year before. There are now approximately 59 million Americans who do freelance work for at least some of their income. 

Topping the list in income, freelancers who engaged in construction earned 3x more than artists and entertainers and almost 2x more than gig drivers. Nearly 30% of freelancers also held a W-2 job, with almost 80% working from home. 

  • In 2022, freelancers are on track to overpay the IRS more than $3,000 each in taxes.
  • The top 3 expenses were contract labor, meals and transportation.
  • Amazon is the vendor of choice for purchasing office supplies, underscoring a wide competitive lead over other major retail and office supply vendors.

With third-quarter tax payments due September 15th, the new report provides self-employed and freelancers with some useful and timely tips. Notably, the report found the top 5 mistakes that freelancers make around tax filing:

  • Poor record keeping around income details
  • Knowledge gap around estimated taxes
  • Missing out on eligible tax deductions to lower their tax bill
  • Erroneously taking tax deductions around crypto investments
  • Errors on deductions for business meals

The report’s findings highlighted several data points, including the average freelance earnings by industry, common freelance earnings and expenses, and top deductions that freelancers take.
