For self-employed individuals
Keeping good business records will help you identify your sources of income, your deductible expenses, and prepare your tax returns.
Did you receive a letter from us about your self-employment income? See the Checklist for self-employed individuals for lists of documentation we can use to verify your information. For self-employed drivers, see our Checklist for acceptable proof of income and expenses for taxi, limousine, and self-employed drivers.
