Now that the new year has begun, it’s time to start your business tax preparations for the last year. We have several articles by contributors on the Business Resource Center that may help you with this task.
Lillian Aaron, a software accounting consultant, offers up excellent advice for preparing 1099-MISC forms and avoiding penalties in this article.
To make 1099 reporting in QuickBooks even easier, make sure you check out Lillian’s article about using the QuickBooks 1099 Wizard.
Of course, all tax preparation can be made easier by proactive and consistent maintenance of your books throughout the year. See CPA Margie Monroe’s recent article about how to monitor your business’ monthly expenses in QuickBooks to set yourself up for success in 2016.
We hope you’ll find these resources helpful in preparing your tax documents this year.
