Keep up with estimated taxes prepayments.
Every now and then the IRS will check and possibly charge a penalty+interest. After ignoring it for several years I finally got hit once - after that I behaved myself.

On the flip side, your travel and expenses are much more easily deducted from your income. Just as an example, you may not have "Transit Checks" for to pay for public transport with pre-tax dollars but you now can use it as a business expense (usually) and there's no cap as there would be with tranist checks. Equipment purchases and stuff, too. Just don't be a pig about it.
