Getting the most attention so far is the new tax rate proposed for “pass-through business income” earned by a business organized as a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company (LLC) or S-corporation. These are also known as “pass-through entities.” This provision would allow a pass-through business to characterize a portion of its income as “profit” and enjoy a potentially lower rate of 25 percent on it, while the owner’s salary income could be taxed at the regular rate of as much as 39.6 percent.
In general, a home office deduction is allowed if the home office meets at least one of three criteria: 1) the home office is the principal place of business; 2) the home office is the place where the business owner meets with clients and customers as part of the normal business day; or 3) the place of business is a separate structure on the property, but is not attached to the house or residence. The deduction is figured on the size of the home office as a percentage of the total house or residence. For example, if the total house size is 2,400 square and the home office is 240 square feet, 10 percent of the total house is considered used for business. That would allow the business owner to deduct 10 percent of the household’s costs for electricity, real estate taxes, mortgage interest, insurance, repairs, etc. as business expenses.

I personally haven’t tried any of the below methods so I can’t speak from experience to how they work. In my mind, the most lucrative way is through building a REAL business online and providing your visitors with great value. However, after some thought, I decided to include these here because, quite often, the biggest roadblock for many is a mental one: believing that making money online is possible.
