xray,I absolutely take the student loan interest deduction. I also deduct business expenses, including gas, a mileage log, all my receipts for supplies and for food on the job, and miscellaneous things like framing of my paintings and printing of business cards. And also the tithe I pay is deductible as a charitable contribution.Because of this discussion I am taking a MUCH closer look at my tax papers from the last couple years, and finding that I am, indeed, being charged penalty (not much, about $68 this year) for not paying quarterly taxes. And my deductions for the last year came to well over $5K of my $18K in pay. I am not actually sure how to record and report independent income, now I think of it. From Martha I get a 1099, but what form do I use for myself? Definitely time to take a drive to Tampa and talk to my accountant.:-)Mare
