Do you own a small business? Perhaps you’re a blogger, like me. Or perhaps you’re a WAHM who makes crafts or diapers or soaps (if you are…email me! We need to talk). Maybe you own an in-home daycare. Maybe you tutor on the side.
Whatever it is, it’s a business. And if you earn money on it, then you have to pay taxes on it. Argh. Nobody likes taxes!
This is primarily because no one likes to part with their hard-earned money. But it’s also because taxes are so darn confusing. I remember looking at all the tax forms the first year I was teaching private music lessons and seeing terms like “schedule C,” “golden parachute” and a lot of other weird things. I can figure out a 1040 EZ (barely) but anything more than that and I’m lost.
To remedy the problem, I’ve hired a CPA the last few years to do my taxes for me. He does the work, and just in case there’s a problem (read: I get audited), he handles it. But, it’s not cheap. Not everyone can afford to do it, and probably not everyone wants to do it, especially if your business is making $500 a year. Do you want to pay someone most or all of that money to do your taxes? No way.
That’s where this new book comes in.
Your Blogging Business: Tax Talk and Tips from a Bookkeeper Turned Blogger, by Nikki Hughes, is a new tax guide for small businesses. It explains what the tax forms are, how to fill them out, the nuances of bookkeeping (keeping all your records straight) so that you can do your own taxes, and do them right.
If you’re confused, Nikki’s practical guide and experience as a tax professional will help you figure out all the “boring” parts of the business so that everything is streamlined, under control, and no big deal!
