The Tax Tool Every Entrepreneur Needs

What, like it’s hard? ACTUALLY YA, IT IS KINDA HARD TO BE CEO… esp during tax season. (Sponsored by Intuit QuickBooks. All opinions are my own – always.)
So last we chatted about just about taxes I was still in the process of mourning my flower child ways. I’m a business owner now, and taxes are NO JOKE for two reasons:
  1. My business is my baby so I never wanna do anything to mess that up.
  2. I’m bootstrapping my company, so I want to make sure I’m getting every single deduction possible. NO money left on the table, ya know?
I’ve always hated doing my taxes, but little did I know how EASY I HAD IT when I worked at Google. As a business owner, there are 230430294 more things to track, and it’s kind of a nightmare without the right tools. All I can say is THANK GOD for QuickBooks Self-Employed. If you are a business owner, I srsly suggest you get on board. They make it SO. MUCH. EASIER. to handle this whole tax situation.

Who else is on that work from home grind?

If you’re a blogger, freelancer, independent contractor, etc. – Quickbooks is the way to go

Did you know you can even deduct your home workspace?
Here’s the deal. QuickBooks Self-Employed helps you maximize your deductions. That’s MORE MONEY BACK INTO YOUR BUSINESS (always invest back into your business). Love that. What I didn’t expect is how much QuickBooks has helped with my workflow in general. It’s so easy to categorize your expenses, send invoices, and save receipts – that QuickBooks actually made it easier to track towards my quarterly and annual business goals. You can add your accountant to help manage your account, or if you’re the DIY type, there’s ON DEMAND CHAT SUPPORT. My favorite. (Apologies to QuickBooks chat support for all my questions 🙂 ) brainsoverblonde quickbooks

When you’re a solopreneur, taxes are the last thing you want to spend your time and energy on.

So make it easier on yourself. QuickBooks Self-Employed shows you how to deduct your marketing and inventory expenses, contractor fees, web hosting, workspace, travel, YOU NAME IT. Then just hop on over to their sister site Turbotax Self-Employed to file your taxes. DONE and DONE. If you haven’t filed your 2017 taxes… um… do it now. If you have, I suggest you make your life easier for next year’s tax season by tracking your expenses NOW (I know I am). My “intaxication playlist” will help make it a little less boring!
