    We live in a small town and our craft fairsare listed at the Chamber of Commerce. Check the Calender of Events at the Chamber for info on upcoming events. There is always ebay and craigslist or make your own website, advertise on other websites ie... you knit gifts advertise on a knitting site ect.. Hope this helps.

    It depends on if you are an employee or an independent contractor. As an employee they pay the taxes for you. An IE has to do it themselves every quarter.
    The taxes are the exactsame no matter which way you do it. The only variable is who makes the depositof your earnings that are earmarked as taxes - You or the AP person at XYZ Corp. It is not hard to do at all. It only requires being able to figure very basic math equation with a calculator. I forget the exact percentage amount for FICA and Social Security. The only other thing you have to do is keep up with your expenses (office equipment, phone, utilities as they are all business expenses for your home office!)and making that deposit every 4 months. When you file your taxes it is a bit different because as an IE everything you spend to have $$ come in is a tax deduction. My advice is to meet with a tax person right away if you get a job as an IE but don&#39;t let that discourage you!!! It can be very beneficial to be an IE.

    They are somewhat more than what you would pay from a paycheck, but not much

    more, unless you are making big money.



    The only difference in paycheck is that you never really see or hold the

    money that goes out in taxes, so you don't notice. You do pay all of your

    FICA (as opposed to your employer paying some of it) and you pay

    self-employment tax. If you put 25% - 30% aside and pretend you never had

    it, pay quarterly, you should be good. If that is too hard, you can even

    pay the IRS every single paycheck (electronically).



    If you start making a LOT of money, there are things to do - get a good book

    from the library and study up.

    Hi ,
    As a independent contractor you have to pay 15% social security taxes instead of 7. I know this I use to deliver papers and I had to pay that amount.

    lets see if I can help. I have been an independent distributor for Mia Bella's

    scent sations for 2 yrs. I am just now getting business lic, tax id and all that

    mainly because I have not pushed my business until now and was building up my

    stock etc...so, I had no reportable income. Now I am doing big vendor fairs etc.

    I pay quarterly taxes ( sales tax) which I collect from the customers. As far as

    income tax I am not sure what it will do to us. Right now all the money earned

    is going back into the business. I keep the business and personal finances

    seperate. I am a member of MUIB and the MOM Pack which I can send you links

    for. Both of these sights are great for tips, building business etc... also, I

    have my own group called business links for moms- my group is a central location

    where anyone can look at web sites, find homebased business etc... Feel free to

    look at my sight and there are many web hosts that offer free web sights that

    can get you

    started, Mine costs- feel free to look at it. myspace is also a great ad tool.

    as well as blogging. As for vendor fairs check the Chamber of commerce for your

    city. When I first was looking I did a search for my city events- all kinds came

    up. There are also several online stores that buy and resell. Your best bet is

    to open you own sight, join all the mom groups, work at home groups etc. and

    pass your info around....Good luck and if you have any questions let me know..

    <SPAN class="644035711-19072008">As an independent contractor you pay 15.3% for SS/Medicare. BUT you get to deduct 7.65% on the first page of your taxes. You still end up paying a little more, but for the flexibility and income-making opportunity you gain, it's a worthwhile trade-off! AND as an independent contractor, you can write-off business expenses like supplies, space in your house (the percentage of footage devoted solely for your business), and a percentage of your utilities, taxes, etc. Consider the amount of money you save on gas because you're not commuting, and you're way ahead. It can be hard to get used to not keeping all the moneyyou get from customers, but if you treat it like a paycheck and put a certain percentage away each time, it gets easier.

    <SPAN class="644035711-19072008">My husband has been self-employed for 22 years, and I have been self employed for 4 years. The benefits far outweigh the extra taxes and uncertainty about how much money we'll have each month. We work hard, build our businesses, and enjoy our lives. We work long hours sometimes - you work when the work is available! But the payoffs are well worth it.

    There are some work at home jobs in which you are an employee. Also,

    the takes that you pay are generally less than you'd think - since you

    can deduct legit business expenses. However, if you don't put the tax

    money aside, that's a whole 'nuther problem.
