I'm cheating on my taxes
I earned 200 dollars profit in something I normally engage in as a profession, but earned it outside my normal W-2 generating employers. I'm TOO GOD DAMNED LAZY to fill out the Scedule-CEZ and report it on line 12, so I'm reporting the whole amount on line 21 and not attaching damned thing to explain it.

Yeah, baby, I'm a rebel!

1. I do that all the time. Just add honoraria into the wage/salary line.
The IRS has never had a problem. I don't think they mind that I'm paying taxes on more than is reported on my W-2.


More taxes for them!

2. honoraria? Oooooh, that's good.
I like that.
I think that's what I'll call it.

3. That's the beauty of including in in the wage/salary line.
You don't have to call it anything! It's just a number that's larger by $1000, or whatever.

Then there are the clergy I know, and I know plenty, who don't report honoraria, because there's no W-2 or 1099 for them. So, they think the IRS just doesn't know any way. That grinds my gears. :grr:
