An Update On – 42 Million People Are Currently In The Independent Workforce

For those who don’t know, is a website that helps everyone involved in the sharing economy (and more broadly freelancers, micro-entrepreneurs) answer their most common questions about taxes. This isn’t a small group: Freelancers Union estimates that 42 million people are currently in the independent workforce.

More than ninety days later, it’s clear that has had a positive impact. While the objective was obviously to help Airbnb hosts, Lyft drivers, Etsy sellers, etc. figure out their taxes, we also wanted to open up a conversation about the infrastructure that is needed for this space.
