tax-468440_1280As January winds down, my tax preparation time gears up. Royalty statements are due out to authors before February 1. Once all the royalty statements are in, then it is time to roll up my sleeves and see if a writing career is paying off or not.  To claim writing as a business, I’d have to have worked at it like it was a business, which I did. Now I’ll just have to see if the IRS agrees with me.
