AUGUSTA, Ga., March 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TaxSlayer, a leading online and professional tax and financial technology company, and Hurdlr, a rapidly growing startup that provides financial, tax, and performance insights for "The 1099 Economy," today announced a strategic partnership to bring simple tax filing to self-employed individuals across the United States.
The integrated, seamless solution will allow tax filers to leverage all small business deductions available to them – including mileage, meals, and other business expenses – by tracking eligible expenses in Hurdlr and automatically populating them into TaxSlayer. This new integration will help freelancers, independent contractors, and self-employed small business owners alike maximize their deductions and streamline their tax filing process.
"When we looked at the market, we found the existing freelance tax filing options take too much time and money," said Seth Babb, Head of Consumer Products at TaxSlayer. "Our new partnership with Hurdlr is a complete integration that allows freelancers and typical 1099 workers to file their taxes efficiently and effectively, so they can get back to their passions faster.
Hurdlr's mobile-first, year-round income, expense and mileage tracker on average finds over $5,600 in tax deductions for customers, and has helped over 100,000 freelancers, independent contractors and self-employed small business owners track $6 billion in finances and save $250 million in taxes over the past two years.
