Small-business owners, freelancers and gig-workers may not realize that a lot of their out-of-pocket expenses could be used toward getting a bigger tax break. Web hosting fees, consulting travel costs, ridesharing and delivery car maintenance -- TurboTax can help find all those industry-specific side-gig deductions.

You can also save $20 when you choose the Live filing version and have your paperwork reviewed by a tax expert.

TurboTax also offers a few educational resources depending on your type of gig work. It is always worth it to double-check if your situation qualifies for free filing.
