Taxable and Tax Free Income

Taxable and Tax Free Income

You may be asking yourself some of these questions while preparing your tax return:

  • Do I have to claim my babysitting income on my tax return?
  • What about the money I make from selling things online?
  • What is considered taxable income and what is tax free income?

You can receive taxable and tax-free income as money, property, or services. Most taxable income is reported to you on a Form, some tax-free income can also be reported on a Form, however in general less likely.

For example employee wages including fringe benefits (Form W-2) Independent Contractor Income (one of the many 1099 Forms) and Bartering Income (Form 199-B) or Rental Income (1099-Misc, Schedule C). Keep in mind a copy of most of these forms is also send to the IRS and/or State Tax Agency by the Issuer of the Form. These forms listed here are only a few of the many examples of taxable income. On the other hand you might receive income in form of cash e.g. baby sitting, tips as a waitress etc. that is not necessarily associated with a form, while it still might be taxable income on your income tax return.
