I'm a freelance writer (in US), but I also do some freelance video editing, programming, and virtual assistance along the side. I'm wondering if each of this counts as a "separate source of income". In other words, do I need to submit different forms for each? Also, what about business expenses for each? For example, I had to hire a content editor for freelance writing, and I bought a video editing software for video editing.

    Are you talking about specific tax forms? You don't fill out different personal tax returns for each source - you aggregate income and expenses for all activities in one return.

    Are these separately incorporated businesses? Or is it all just a sole proprietorship? Do any of the individual businesses show a loss? Mar 17, 2023 at 18:35
