How to Do Taxes for Avon


If you sell cosmetics and other products for Avon, the Internal Revenue Service considers you self-employed. You report your Avon income and business expenses on Schedule C, the form for self-employment income. After you subtract your expenses from your income, report the net on your Form 1040.

Income and Expenses

  • Any money you receive from Avon counts as taxable income, including sales, commissions, bonuses and the value of free cosmetics. If you recruit other sales representatives, you get a commission on their sales. That also counts as taxable income. You can deduct expenses such as the cost of driving to sales appointments.

Self-Employment Tax

  • As a self-employed professional, you use Form SE to calculate self-employment tax. This is equivalent to the Social Security and Medicare taxes you would pay as an employee. You can write off half of your SE Tax on Form 1040.
