Michael Freestone says:

You're forgetting the federal income tax rates.

Everything put together I pay 27.3%.

Farron Rubio says:

For your example at the end of your video… how did you come up with the Tax Liability equaling $10,650? I was able to follow your video all the way up to this point… well I thought I did anyway. I understand how you came up with $10,597 for SE Tax but not the first amount. You lost me.

Hi there. Just stumbled across your channel and I love it. My situation is kind of an accident. I was asked to do a presentation 4 times a year for essentially Health and Wellness and later asked to fill out a w-9. Im only receiving a $50 stipend for each presentation and wondered what was the purpose of this form for such a petty cash amount of money.

John Jones says:

But what if I can't pay?
Tyrone as an Enrolled Agent I must say that this is an excellent instructional video. I help many 1099 self employed people who got behind in filing and paying by getting them straighten out. Perhaps a video such as this one might have helped them not get into this position.
The IRS does offer several resolution plans for those who have gotten behind. My advice for those people is to have someone like me find out exactly what the IRS will require to get the issue fixed and then apply the appropriate resolution plan. Waiting only makes things worse.
Just like you answering tax questions, I answer questions on "TAX DEBT" and "Resolution".
If anyone is interested you can email me at or visit my blog at

Natu Beyn says:

Great video but my question is what if we don't know how much our gross income is going to be like in the trucking businesses you don't know how much you going to much the next month do you have any solution s for me

Paxton VLOGS says:

Have you done one like this for 2018 small business tax filing? My husband is about to step into this for the first time as a 1099 contractor for a company, and I’ve always been the “bill payer” in the family. I’m a little scared, but can really absorb the instruction due to how you present it so well. I like your videos!

Sveta N says:

In the beginning you said that self employed tax is 15% but half gets credited, so its 7.5%. But at the end in example of Brian, single with 75000 income you make his se tax 10000 something. But thats 15%. So which is it for se, 7 or 15%?

emoneywon says:

thanks for the intel.

Sveta N says:

"Nowwww… you need to choose your method. But you don't have to fiill out W4". What method, whats W4 form??? You dont define things.

Mushky Fuchs says:
