Taxes for Technicals
Everything Aspiring Developers Need to Know About Taxes
"Do I need an LLC or an S-Corp? What is an S-Corp?"
"Am I saving enough for taxes?"
"I just want to build software. I don't want to read pages and pages of IRS gobbledygook."
Which statement best describes your feelings? Probably all three. And you're not alone.
Many developers struggle with the idea of becoming a freelancer because they don't know what business entity to become, how to pay themselves, or how to pay the right amount of taxes at the right time.
They freeze at the thought of complicated paperwork taking time away from doing what they love.
All you want is to build awesome software for your clients. And you should do what you're amazing at doing.
You don't need to read up on the tax code (I'd wouldn't wish that on my greatest enemy).
Instead, take this course and you'll find out:
- What's the difference between an LLC, S-Corp, and sole proprietor? And which should you choose?
- A practical system to make sure you always have enough saved to pay the taxes you owe
- What to keep track of and how to do it well
- The answers to common questions about taxes
Join me to learn what every freelancer needs to know about taxes. Build your business in a way that saves you money instead of bleeding it into the waiting arms of the IRS.
Set up a system that allows you to do what you love and keep your taxes on autopilot.
I can't wait to see you inside!
I'm Justin Boyer. I've been in the tech industry (first as a software tester then as a developer/appsec expert) for about 10 years. About a year ago, I left my job and started freelancing full-time. I'm now a content marketer for tech companies. I've also authored two Pluralsight courses: Threat Modeling Using the Microsoft Threat Modeling Methodology (has helped some get certified) and Practical Cryptography Using Node.js (currently rated 4.5 stars out of 5).
I've met many developers, architects, and others who were frustrated with working for someone else. Some dreamed of building the next Facebook. Others wanted to change the world and make people's lives better. But there was always something holding them back from actually making the leap.
Was it fear? Was it comfort? I'm determined to find the answer for all developers and help them gain the amazing freedom and flexibility a freelancing lifestyle offers. I just went on vacation with my family and didn't have to ask anyone for time off. It's a feeling I want as many to experience as possible.
That's what I'll offer to you in my school. The best possible advice I can give you on becoming a successful freelance developer.
