Smutlancer Monthly Income Report: July 2019

Kayla Lords

I am an erotic author, sex blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, an opinionated marketer, and a speaker with a focus on BDSM and D/s. Here at The Smutlancer, I help people who want to create content or products about sex get paid to do it. I'm sharing what I've learned as a freelancer and a sex blogger to build a career. You can find me online sharing my innermost sexual thoughts and experiences and helping kinksters have healthy BDSM relationships. I'm also a masochistic babygirl submissive with an amazing and sadistic Daddy Dom and business partner, John Brownstone.

    Is renting your home a temporary thing, or will it be ongoing? I ask because: if you sold your condo, then purchase a new home, there are federal tax advantages because it’s considered investment. If you made money on your condo (on paper — hopefully you kept all your receipts for work done on it while you lived there) and do NOT re-invest in real estate (i.e., buy a different dwelling), you’ll be stuck with capital gains taxes, which… Yes, that definitely means taking a hit on taxes.

    Your insurance – if it’s health insurance you’re talking about – is tax deductible as a business expense since you’re self employed. Just FYI, since a lot of people don’t know that. 🙂

    (I’m self-employed too, and my income – while steady – is piecemeal, so I have become a rather skilled tax wrangler. If you ever want to chat about it, shoot me an email. I’m happy to share what I’ve learned and to learn anything you have to share!) (Or just to vent — it can be quite frustrating!)

      Renting is temporary. We intend to buy again next spring. This was how we got here without accidentally buying something we would end up hating.

      And yes, it’s our health insurance. Our subsidy went WAY down once we updated our income so we pay more out of pocket. Our tax person is handling all of those fine details on not paying too much. We’ve set ourselves up as an LLC, S Corp which she says will save us thousands on our taxes, but I’m still waiting to see what that looks like in practice.

      And thank you. I may take you up on the offer sometime. 🙂
