Take the link to your business off before you post, please.

Not to mention, if you are in an independent contracting position to WAH, you'll be taxed at a higher rate for self-employment.

I can appreciate that you are trying to help with other options for this poster. I also WAH. I think it's a valid choice and the best choice for myself and my family.

Your posts, links, and screen name just look a little spammy, and there's really no need to be so defensive, call names, etc. I lurk here quite a bit and I can tell you that no one, whether WOH, WAH, or SAH are greeted kindly by jumping in and claiming that their choice is the best and that everyone should do it.

It's not attacking; it's debating what you posted. No one is saying that one can't make a living by wah. Many of us here do just that. What I'm saying is that wah is not a way to stay home and be with your children. What has also been pointed out is that wah jobs, like every other job, is not unlimited. Your statement about being paid for sah didn't come off as a joke when first read. It wasn't until several people asked questions about it did you explain it was a joke. Next time, add a winky face or disclaimer.

That's probably because many of the people you know don't have their dream jobs.

I agree with both of those statements.

That's what I was referring to. A self employed person has to pay their own share of payroll taxes AND the share that their employer would normally pay, in addition to regular income taxes. Sure, you get to deduct your expenses, but that's not income anyway. And if she is writing off half of her home as a home office, she is likely to get audited soon, it's a big red flag. You cannot deduct home work space unless is is used pretty much solely for business purposes. (Unless it's a daycare.)
