I have taken pictures as a hobby for awhile now. Recently I have turned from family portraits, family senior pics, etc to more people wanting to pay me to do this. If I start making money doing this from home what do I need to do As far as taxes go? Do I need to register something, or as long as I am not doing business as (DBA) another name and just using my name what should I do? I can use my SSN instead of getting a TAX ID number as long as I am the only person right? Other than the obvious keeping track of money earned, and spent what forms do I need to file end of year?
