My company, Freshbooks, recently collaborated with a research firm to survey more than 2,000 freelancers about their work and their challenges. Perhaps unsurprisingly, tax compliance emerged as a source of stress. A significant number of respondents preferred any of the following tribulations to filing taxes:
- Getting stuck in line at the DMV.
- Being trapped in the middle seat on a long plane ride.
- Undergoing major dental work.
- Coming down with the flu.
