Hello, world!

I need to learn more about the taxes/tax forms associated with working as an independent freelance web developer, and setting up contracts with clients. What do I need to know? Are there any good resources about this?

Thanks

Freelance+contracts
Here's a url incase you haven't hit Google yet.

From personal experience on the contract issue i would say be specific and get the client to be specific about what they want done. If nothing has been put down (or nothing specific) it's really easy for the client to just say no thanks and leave you high and dry. It also leaves holes for the client to sneak in additional work, under the heading of "It's part of what i wanted".
