So I recently started a small internet business, just a small writing service. My earnings aren't significant. So far I'm earning less than $500 USD monthly but I'm just wondering how the U.S. government will tax me at the end of the year. I'm not incorporated or anything like that so will they just tax all of the income? I do manage a small team of employees that I dish out weekly payroll for so is there anyway I can deduct that even though I'm not an "official" business? I just don't want to owe Uncle Sam a ton of money at the end of the tax year.
