Walking A New Path

smkellat receives $0.00 per week from 0 patrons.


Currently I want to walk away from my job as a civil servant. Although I was previously acting as a domestic missionary that door has been closed to me for the moment. I currently serve as a tax collector. Previously I have worked as a librarian, teacher, radio advertising copy producer, podcaster, and even goatherd.

Operationally there are projects I want to take up. Currently those include:

  • Raspberry Pi development of a standard image for captive portal nodes for use in emergency operations areas
  • A return to podcasting (genre to be determined)
  • Make a short film to submit to at least one film festival as I have the concept and rough story worked out already

I have reviewed the necessary publications from the Internal Revenue Service and have consulted appropriate people. Steps have been taken to properly account for funding and otherwise comply with the income tax laws of the United States of America. Despite EU-centric views expressed about the nature of funds on this site, any money provided would not count as a “gift” under the tax laws of the United States of America but rather general gross revenue. This would result in reporting on a Schedule C attached to my annual tax return under the NAICS industry code of 711510 which translates to “Independent artists, writers, and performers”. It won’t be the first time filing such a Schedule C.
