Tax season is here. Ugh!
This can bee a small business night mare. That’s right the thing that goes bump in the night. The longer you put it off the louder the bump in the night gets.
Stop pulling out your hair waiting to get your taxes done. First of the more time you sit thinking about how you need to do your taxes, and not DOING them is useless crap. Don’t make tax season your tum season. I know the feeling iv’e been there. Stomach all cramped up worried about when I was going to do it and how and if and and and and…….you get the point.
Here is what I do now.
- Get them done ASAP (as soon as possible) Jan 1st is a good day to try for.
- Hire a CPA ( usually you get more money back than if you didn’t spend your money with one)
- Work on my accounting like a baling water out of a sinking canoe.
- Do my do diligence.
- Get to know my tax codes let the those tax codes work for you.
I can already here the complaining. I can’t afford a CPA for my taxes. Well first off you can’t not afford to in my opinion.
For all of you naysayer’s. There are ways to do your taxes on your own free no charge. I don’t necessarily recommend this way as it can take your valuable time. But hey why not I know there are those stuck in there beginnings of there businesses and just simple have more time than money. So let me refer you to a few places that will help you do your taxes right and quickly as you can by yourself.
By know if you have been reading in my blog posts you’ve herd of wave apps. So that is where you should have started. Next thing you want to do if find a free easy to use internet based web application to do your taxes. Gone are the days of pushing paper. Gone are the day’s of waiting months for your return. We live in a time where thing’s should be instant.
TurboTax would be my first recommendation. That’s because of the easy of use and there free. Not to mention there is a huge customer service group to help with your questions. This is where I would get started. Now yes there simple yes there quick, and yes you now feel like a tax genius becouse you have done it all your self.
Bravo!! Pat your self on the back now your an accountant and a CPA. Please though do me a favor and don’t ever do your own taxes again.
This is why.
- CPA’S are good at what they do…. yes better than turbo tax
- you’ll make more money than you spend on them
- you’ll spend zero time on your taxes (talk about stress free)
- You have a business to run
These are my thoughts, let the pro’s do what they do so you can do what you do.
Trust me you’ll thank me later hope this helps.
