It’s Almost THAT Time of Year Again – Taxes

Thursday, December 27, 2012


Preparing my taxes makes me feel like the Tasmanian Devil!!

I am a little better prepared this year then I was last year—but totally lost track of my individual clients somehow—I do have the total BUT—now will have to wait until they either do or don’t send me a 1099. Unfortunately, with Tax software, you have to list separately and individually those that send you a 1099—what a pain!! At least my expenses are in order----Maybe I will just call them (my clients) and walk them through, on the phone, how to see what they gave me this year—I really have to get my taxes in early this year since I no longer have that 3 day a week job in NJ. I have to file 2 Schedule C forms—one for my Bookkeeping Service and one for Internet related monies.

AND—who knows what the tax structure will be—Congress is playing games again--. Will my taxes be higher or lower—did I withhold enough extra when I was working in NJ to cover my NY tax—what about the tax credit for health insurance—will it still be there—Thank heavens I no longer have any monies in the stock market—that form is now a nightmare. I do have a small 401K – but plan on leaving it right where it is for the foreseeable future anyway.

But most important—will the IRS even have enough time to change the forms if there are any changes so that I and I am sure a lot of others can file their taxes as early as possible in order to get their refunds?

Oh my lord, I can't even think about taxes yet. It gives me way too much stress. I'll worry about it in March. Kuddos to you for planning ahead. :)

Since I run a home business, I usually wait until the last minute to file.

A few years ago we started having a CPA do our taxes and it is such a relief!

I usually do our taxes around the beginning of February to get them over and done with.

This year we are hiring someone to do them for us. It is getting too complicated!

Oh I am so not ready to think about taxes. I track all my expenses in Outright and I love it.

Can you tell me what tax software you use and if it can be purchased at a store?

Shhh, I am trying to pretend like taxes don't exist! LOL! I actually started a payroll account this month so that it would make tax time a little easier.

Already...tax season is upon us. My dad is a CPA so it helps us out with our taxes:)

Keeping up with taxes can be a nightmare! Glad this software seems to handle it.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I am just beginning to get a little stressed about it all! I've been paying quarterly, but I have receipts everywhere that need compiling!

I am finally going to let a professional to ours. It just stresses me out to do ours.

Ugh. I don't even want to think about taxes right now. Thankfully there are lots of things out there to help with them.
