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?

  1. I’m a dual citizen, so I have to file taxes in two separate countries.

    At least their tax years are diametrically opposite and there’s a tax treaty between the two of them.

    Still, having to do the paperwork twice, especially when the other country is so much more technologically advanced than the US, is a bit annoying.

    • Hi Heidi – You have all my sympathy. That would be awful–to have to file in two countries. It’s like double trouble. Thanks for stopping by.

Please share your random thoughts.
