Countrygirl,


How do you "get away with" writing in all caps??  Not a dig on you, but a legitimate question.  I know you have no control over it, so I am not actually looking for an answer.


The FC forum never allows me to write anything in all caps, so I have to use bold or italics when I am trying to emphasize something on here. But when I tried to do a quote reply to your comment above (and even deleted out your phrasing in all caps - it still prohibited me from posting!!!


I've run into that  issue several times where the caps were not even mine and I deleted them anyway - but the forum still somehow thinks that my post has bad caps in it.  It has happened many times and gets pretty frustrating because all of the offensive caps have been deleted!!!!!  (see below)



Anyway - what app do you use to track your progress toward $600 that you referred to above?

The last 2 years I have done over the $600 threshold and only had to claim it as income.  Came out that it didn't matter after my deductions so really not worried about the extra income.  Also when I checked my social security account it was added as income so it will help a very little towards my earnings when I go to collect my social security in 6 years.

Uhm I don't type in all caps. I do use SOME caps from time to time.  I have never posted and entire post in all caps.

There are several. Just look in the app store for hour tracking apps.  I have a couple. One I use for hours worked on my actual job and I have another I think it is called  WORKTIME  that I use for sites like this.  You can use any app that allows you to do invoices.  You make each invoice  like this a "job" (like you are a business owner) then when you earn money you put it in to that "job".   You can then look at them and see what you have earned this year, this month, or however.  You can look at different ones because you may like something else better.  Also depends on what type phone you have.  iPhones have different apps available that Andriod phones.  But that is how I searched for the app to use.

I am lucky if I make 200.00 a year on here. I think I cash out for 25 bucks about 10 times a year. I try to cash out ever month but the way this site is, it is almost impossible.  :-X

I don't know about the medicare but when you get a 1099 you do have to pay social security.  It has been years but I used to do bookkeeping as an independent contractor and got a 1099 and had to do this other tax form to pay in SS. It has been so long I don't remember about anything else. You can deduct internet and other costs though associated with earning online.

Hmmm.  I never thought about deducting internet costs. lol  That makes total sense though.

My accountant always deducts internet costs whenever I submit a tax form from one of these sites.

Exactly! I know that this is better addressed in a support ticket, but I always seem to get this warning (and it prohibits me from posting) whenever I have just a couple of words in all caps - like the quote in your recent post. It is a glitch of some sort obviously - especially when you factor in that it wasn't me who used any caps and it still prohibits my post after I've deleted the caps in an edit...

So you are submitting a support ticket - telling on me?  Uhm okay.  You can always just type your own post and put the first line the person you are wanting to talk to.  I have never posted an entire post in all caps.  I get the same warning as everyone else.

I have never made enough to pay taxes.  I think you would need to make over 500.

I just hit $600 with last cash out...tried to fill out the on line W-9 on here but it wouldn't go through...put in support ticket and still waiting on reply.
Probably have to fax it in like I did with another site a couple years ago.
Won't let me cash out until they get it.... :(

The only time I have needed to submit one I mailed it.

Since you are also using a personal computer, you can also deduct a percentage of the time as well. For example, you spend 10% of your time on FC throughout the year to earn money. That's something you can also claim.

That would be hard to prove. I paid for the computer in full a couple or more years ago. I figured if you get in to that then you are kind of like running a business and you could end up having to pay something for running a business out of your home.  I think when you file it asks if you "run a business" from your home. I don't call this type of earning money a job.  Esp since some days I may spend ALL day on here and only make a couple of dollars.  You have to have income from some where else. No one can make enough on penny clicking survey sites to totally support themselves.  If they can I would like to have a real chat with them. lol
