Frequently asked questions
Do I need to file taxes as a self-employed if I didn’t receive a 1099 form?
It depends. If you made more than $400 from clients, you are required to report your income on your tax return, whether or not you received a 1099 form. The IRS sometimes won’t catch a mistake for years, but once they do you will owe them for the unreported income along with a penalty fee.
How do I file taxes if I’m self-employed?
If you didn’t form a business entity, like a corporation, or you are a single-member LLC, you’ll be automatically considered as a sole proprietor by the IRS. You’ll need to file Schedule C to report your taxable business income or loss, and Schedule SE to report your self-employment taxes (Social Security and Medicare taxes). The IRS will also expect you to make quarterly estimated payments using form 1040-ES. But don’t worry, Freely will handle everything for you so you don’t have to!
What expenses can I deduct as a self-employed?
It depends on the field you’re working in. But the most commonly overlooked deductions are: business use of your home (rent, wifi, phone, water, and electricity bills), business meals, car expenses, education expenses, and business startup costs. We know it can be quite overwhelming to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Just link your bank or credit card to Freely and we’ll scan your past purchases to automatically find the tax write-offs you may have missed!
Can Freely find tax write-offs for prior months ?
Yes! If you join mid-year and want to go back to find tax write-offs from earlier in the year, you definitely can. In fact, we can generally import up to 13 months of data which can certainly come in handy if you haven’t tracked any expenses for 2021.
Can I link multiple bank accounts and credit cards ?
Yes! You can connect as many bank accounts and credit cards as you like. We support more than 11,000 banks (e.g. Chase, Capital One) as well as most credit unions (e.g. Navy Federal Credit Union), online payment accounts (e.g. PayPal), and credit cards (e.g. American Express).
Can I submit my taxes to the IRS through Freely ?
Not really. Right now we’re focusing on what we do best: monitoring your business accounts in real-time to keep your finances organized and find all the tax deductions you’ve been missing out on. So, when the tax season rolls around, your expenses are deducted and we’ll generate all the tax documents you need to file your taxes for your self-employed business no matter how you choose to file, with tax software or an accountant. We want to give you the freedom to choose the tax filing method that suits you best!
