For the average small business owner, getting one’s
taxes done is about as fun as getting a root canal, then getting punched
in the face, then having your heart broken via text message.
Fortunately, preparing your income tax returns does not have to all that painful. Yes, actually paying the taxes due may hurt no matter what, but the tax preparation process itself can be tamed. If April is your least favorite month of the year, we have a seminar for you:
“How to Not Completely and Totally Hate Doing Your Taxes.”
In this January 15th seminar (3 pm at BLANKSPACES on Wilshire), Enrolled Agent tax consultant Andy Frye of Pronto Income Tax of California, Inc. and Certified Professional Organizer Mishele Vieira of Away with Chaos will show freelance entrepreneurs how to:
Save money on taxes
Save money on tax preparation
Avoid problems with the Internal Revenue Service
Surely these are three things that every freelancer can enjoy! The best way to save money on taxes, save money on tax preparation, and avoid problems with the IRS, of course, is to keep good records of all business-related expenses. But for the busy entrepreneur, achieving the dream of meticulous bookkeeping is often easier said than done.
In this seminar, Andy and Mishele show you how to develop a simple, doable record-keeping system for tracking business expenses—and thus not completely and totally hate doing your taxes. At the end of the seminar, attendees will receive a special tax season offer worth more than $200.
Location: 5405 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036, Phone: (323) 330-9505
