What are the implications of being on unemployment and Patreon?

A while ago I quit my job and went on unemployment insurance. Then later, I signed up for Patreon because I figured it might help to make a little extra cash. But then I found out that apparently Patreon money is considered taxable income and you have to complete a W9 if you make more than $600/year. So... am I in some kind of "employment limbo?"

Two Tax Questions!

It's weird to ask tax questions in May, but I'm trying to be nicer to myself next April. If I have a full time job that involves attending events, can I write off expenses regarding those events? And, if I'm anticipating having to file freelancer taxes next year, how much of that untaxed income should I be setting aside to pay taxes? [more inside]

Accountant recommendation for NY/NJ

I butchered my state income taxes in 2008. New Jersey caught on with an audit, and now I owe NJ a lot of money. I suspect that if I did the taxes correctly, almost all of that money (except for 3 years of interest :( ) would actually come from New York State. Having screwed it up once with Turbotax, I don't trust myself to get it right by hand. [more inside]

What address to put on returns for filing taxes for two states?

Last year I lived and worked in two different states (RI and CA) I worked two jobs in RI and then got another temp job in CA and moved out there in the fall. So I am using TaxCut to file my returns (yes I know its cutting it close) but I am confused when it asks for the "Employee's address" under the W-2 section; what do I put? Do I put my address where I used to live for those jobs back in RI or my current one in CA? I still consider myself a RI resident and will be moving out of CA in two weeks back to New England.

How do I do taxes when I haven't worked all year?

How do I do taxes when I haven't worked all year? Let me explain: I spent all of 2007 saving money so I could spend the first half of 2008 teaching myself a new career path I'm interested in. I had originally intended on picking up a job halfway into the year, but as it turns out I was able to spend the whole year learning. I'm not enrolled in any school, so I'm not technically a student or anything. I also didn't make any money in 2008, I just lived very frugally. So how do I approach taxes?
