    What do you guys use for your job title on your schedule C when you file your taxes? Do they have a classification of "Affiliate Marketer"? In the past ours has either been consultant and/or website design and maintenance. I'm wondering if we need to change it and if the IRS would even know what Affiliate Marketer is.

    We are going to get nailed big time for taxes this year so I want to be careful and not get stuck with an audit. We haven't had to make estimates, but next year we will and I would like to have all our ducks in a row.

    We certainly have enjoyed the money, now we just have to pay for that enjoyment!

    I'm no expert - so don't rely on my advice. But I think the word consultant triggers some negative vibes with the IRS. Since they may not know what AM is, why not just say Internet Marketing?

    Akiva,

    Direct Marketing is what I have been using since the beginning and have had no problems.

    Thanks guys. In the past my husband has used consulting, because he has done some consulting stuff. But now it is mostly affiliate marketing and we want to make sure we don't throw up any red flags since he's made a lot more from am this year than in the past.
