Aliza, I can totally understand where you are coming from. I've been self-employed for many years, I'm being penalized for not being able to find work in 2001. We all know what happened in 2001 but I was told by the IRS agent that's not a good enough excuse. Go figure.


I feel your pain! I freelanced for two years, full time...the same number of years I was able to claim a loss. Taxes were definitely a factor in my decision to work as an editor full time and write selectively on my own. It's really frustrating.

The first year, what I paid my accountant to do my taxes was more than my refund (refund because I was vigilant about paying taxes quarterly). The second, I owed at the end of the year (and had to set up a monthly schedule to be able to pay). Then I got audited for the prior year, and I ended up paying for that one too.
