Things You Didn’t Know
About Working on the RV Road
Do you itch to get Out There in a rolling home, living free and traveling in your RV? Thousands of RV travelers are still in the work force but they aren’t standing still. Today it’s possible to live and travel in an RV and work along the way. Here’s just a quick look at some ways to make a living on the go:
* Follow the fairs and festival circuit to sell your arts or crafts.
* Work at seasonal campgrounds, marinas, tourist attractions
* Work for a national temp agency such as Kelly Services
* Work for a temporary staffing agency that specializes in your field, such as nursing
* Work as a camp host or other campground employee for wages and/or a free campsite.
* Be a traveling sales rep, troubleshooter, consultant
* Work online in any number of e-business fields from tutoring or consulting to sales
* Use your talent as a performer to get gigs at music festivals, trade shows, conferences
* Make use of your knowledge of history to work as a tour guide or a docent in a museum
* Stay abreast of job openings that come with a campsite or hook-ups such as Amazon fulfillment centers
Then be aware of the wrinkles, hassles, requirements and costs that might go with the deal.
* You may need a local or state business permit or license even for something as simple as a lemonade stand.
* Campgrounds usually do not permit campers to operate a business from a campsite.
* Your earnings in a state that has an income tax will be taxed even if your “home” state has no income tax. Depending on the state ahd the number of days you stayed here, you might qualify for a refund. Non-cash earnings, such as a free campsite, might also be taxed as income.
* Writing off your RV or mileage as a business expense depends on many factors. Get professional help.
* If you are self-employed you can deduct the cost of health insurances. You’re also subject to Self-Employment Tax (i.e Social Security tax) even if you already collect Social Security. Again, get professional advice.
*Whether or not to form a corporation or LLC is your decision. Explore the merits and drawbacks.
