If you have income from a side venture with NO SIGNIFICANT EXPENSES, classifying that endeavor as "hobby income" may save you hundreds of dollars in tax. Hobby income is not subject to the 15% self-employment tax that you otherwise pay on part-time business income.
You may have a hobby if: 1) you enjoy the work 2) you have another source of primary income 3) the work is sporadic or 4) the work is very part-time. Hobby income examples include fish tank cleaning, church organist, babysitting and baked good sales.
