Posted this in the General Messages and was recommended here - Preface - Total newbie to investing, etc. I have had a pretty good year from a side internet gig and will be grossing probably over $10K from internet sales income. Since I am "Joe Middle Class" I am very concerned about this relatively big jump in income and want to make sure I do the right thing tax wise - 1] to minimize the tax hit and 2] to make sure I allocate enough money to cover the taxes. I am currently not set up as a business or anything like that - just an independent designer who finally seems to be getting it going! Thanks much for any thoughts...

PS - more than willing to read related articles, just haven't found the right one yet!
