Happy New Year…Give Me Your Money 16

Posted on January 01, 2012 by DJ

Find your checkbook, break out your receipts, and grab those W-2′s and 1099′s because it’s time to start thinking about taxes.

Actually, I feel a little odd writing about this because I am not an early filer. In reality I start thinking about taxes in March, and then in April I take it a bit more seriously and actually get them done. That’s what works for me, I just don’t feel really “taxy” in January.

I am not a CPA, accountant, or anything of the sort so I am not going to give a list of recycled tax tips for the self employed, but I will say this-

1) If you prefer to fill out forms by hand (do people still do this??) the IRS website is a great resource for downloading forms.

2) If you prefer a computer based solution, try out Tax Act. I started using it years ago. I’ll be honest and say the only reason I tried it was because it was cheaper than another popular tax software program. But, over the years it has proven itself to be a great solution.
