Dear Photographer: Have Any Advice on How to Pay State, Federal and Quarterly Taxes?

At the beginning of the year, I made the transition into being a full-time freelance photographer and photo editor. It’s going well- I’ve had steady engaging work and I am loving it! I’ve managed to stay organized: keeping records of income and expenses, saving receipts, and managing invoices. But, I’ve struggled with how to pay state, federal and quarterly taxes. Every time I research it, my head gets so boggled! How the heck does a freelance photographer pay taxes? Help! —Anonymous
