With tax season ramping up and, millions of Americans are taking a closer look at their income.

This can come in the form of a new job, an additional part-time job, or a to help make ends meet.
Fortunately, there are also multiple ways to generate.
Passive income activities, defined by the IRS, “include trade or business activities in which you don’t materially participate. You materially participate in an activity if you’re involved in the operation of the activity on a regular, continuous, and substantial basis.”
With a shift to remote and hybrid work amid the pandemic, there are many ways to go about generating passive income, some of which won’t even require you to leave the comfort of your home.
