      IRS says we must claim all money made, period. I do many side jobs and claim it on my taxes, if you get audited you may get yourself in some big trouble. Love the ideas though.

      PRoblems with these things nowadays is that people ask ridiculous low rates for their efforts. For example, overhere in the Netherlands people offer themselves to clean your house for just 8 euro/hour. That is really low !!

      Good article but I would advise against advertising a business of your own if you do not have a business license. I live in Las Vegas and I know of a few stories that made the news where police busted people on craigslist trying to earn some extra money by offering services for cash. One in particular was to "move" someone from one home to another for a small fee. A little bit of extra money for the day is not worth going to jail over! I wouldn't recommend it!
