Tax time is upon us… and we’re just as unhappy about it as you are.

Luckily, with our community of over 250,000 freelancers nationwide, we don’t have to struggle through it on our own.

So this week, we’re asking all of you -- our freelance experts -- to share your best tax tips.

If you could tell your freelance peers one thing about doing their taxes, what would it be?

Let us know on Twitter using #FreelanceTaxTips and you could win a prize!

What’s the prize, you ask?

  • One lucky freelancer will win a tax consultation with our freelance tax expert, Jonathan Medows.**
  • 3 runners-up will win a Freelancers Union gift bag that’ll include a tote, a copy of the Freelancers Bible by Sara Horowitz, and more.

But what about those of you who have never done this before -- or those who (understandably) still have questions?

One thing you can do is pick up a copy of our new e-book, The Freelancers Union Guide to Taxes, on sale now for just $1.99.

You can also appeal to your fellow freelancers by joining the conversation in our Hive, “Ask Your Tax Questions” -- a place where independent workers are helping each other navigate the complicated world of taxes.

Lastly, don't forget to attend our monthly Spark event! Tonight, in 15 cities across the country, we’ll be hosting a freelance tax workshop that will also include a Q&A with a tax expert. Are you in one of those 15 cities? If you are, you certainly don’t want to miss this.

So freelancers, what’s your best tax tip?

The consultation is a) for consultation only, b) does not involve computations, and c) does not involve reviewing 2014 tax returns
