Tax Time

February 17th, 2014

This week, among the neverending ‘to do’ list, is putting together all the tax paperwork for my business. Last year, I had the bright idea to do them on my own, and after spending about 9 hours just filling them in, I decided not to make that mistake again. I was happy to have been able to do them, but it’s not worth the stress and headache for me. This year, I’m paying an accountant to do my business taxes.

I was talking to mom last night about it- and about how I was gathering everything together, and trying to make the process as simple as possible for the accountant, which would in turn mean less fees for me when it comes time to pay her. The accountant I chose mentioned that sometimes people just bring a huge box of papers and say ‘here you go’, expecting her to work her magic.

Mom said that their accountant has mentioned the same type of thing. The thought makes my skin crawl. It is going to mean a little extra work for me, but I see it as a win-win situation for both of us.

So this time next week, I’ll be gathering the final papers and heading off to my ‘meet and greet’ apponitment, and we’ll go from there.

Tax time- gotta love it.

    hehe profit pays the bills :) Thankfully I don’t have to rely on mine to pay them.

    I’m still waiting to hear from her, but I met with her earlier this week and dropped them off.

    She’s great- now I’m praying she doesn’t charge me through the nose haha.

    I used to do my taxes and WOW what a lot of time. I went to the shoebox technique for a few years.
    Now I file everything and turn it over.
