It’s that time of year again. TAX TIME. 1099’s. Finding all those receipts you should have kept. Figuring out how much you owe the government. I just hung up from my tax accountant and this picture illustrates how I feel.
I don’t want to stop the forward progress on my novel or stop reading my training manuals for the John Maxwell Team. But I must. I need to send out 1099’s to every person I paid $600 or more to for services.
Jackson Hille, a writer, sent me an email today announcing a website he and his UC Berkely mentor, Justin Gomer, designed for freelance writers. It’s called “The Freelancer’s Essential Guide to Business and Taxes.” Here is their website: http://formswift.com/independent-contractor-guide
Bookmark this site for future use. It’ll come in handy. I already downloaded a few 1099 forms for my editors and artists.
I hope it helps you, too.
What’s your favorite part of TAX TIME?
