Freelancer Victory! Obama Signs Small Business Jobs Act

This past summer, Freelancers Union actively rallied around passage of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, urging members to contact their legislators, sending memorandums of support to elected officials, and meeting with key stakeholders. Yesterday, September 27, 2010, President Obama signed the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010 into law. One of the most beneficial provisions of the legislation will allow you to deduct the cost of your health insurance when calculating your self-employment taxes this year.
