How the IRS Knows You are Operating a Hobby, Not a Business.

There are many business opportunities to earn an extra income or a full time income.  Many will turn to a direct sales or networking marketing opportunity.

The direct sales and networking marketing industry is a popular option for many because it allows for low overhead and the opportunity for a high income, if and only if, you run it as a business. That part is a challenge for most and many times the difference between success and failure.

Now, the key is NOT your definition of what running a business entails, but what the IRS says about it.

The IRS had a $300 BILLION tax gap and they know there are suspicious activities for which individuals will start a “business” where really it was a way where expenses that where incurred could be written off as a loss against earned income… (not a real business, just a way to justify money you would have spent anyways so now you want to turn it into a tax write off).
