At the end of each year, all you have to do to prepare your tax return is tally up every bit of money you brought in from various channels, right? Not necessarily. It’s important to differentiate types of income based on the government’s designations.
For instance, do you know the difference between earned and unearned income?
- Earned income comes from providing your personal services. This includes wages, commissions, tips, and income from self-employment.
- Unearned income comes from investments, capital gains, pensions, and other passive activities.
Another term you’ll come across is taxable income. This refers to the dollar amount on which you’ll be taxed—your total income once adjustments, deductions, and exemptions are removed.
