I asked a question on SO about what I need to do to prepare to freelance/consult. It was closed by the mod's, but I'm not sure where I should go to ask this type of question?
It is programming related but not necessarily programming, I can see why it doesn't necessarily fit on SO but don't know where to go to ask this.

I'm going to start doing some freelance/consulting work outside of my normal job. I've never done this before so I'm not sure how I need to set myself to do this?
They will make me a vendor and give me a 1099 at the end of the year I think. Do I need to do anything special beyond this? We are not talking about a lot of hours, I think 20-30 total.
I'd be interested in any input from current freelancer/consultants. Are you a LLC, S-corp? How do you handle taxes and payments? Did any of this cost you money to setup?
Is there a SE Community for this already?
