They will receive a W-2 from their employer at the beginning of the y ear for income earned during the previous year. Other sources of income may include interest & dividends, unemployment income, or social security.

This includes small "mom-and-pop" shops with the typical expenses such as inventory, advertising, and rent. However, many are unaware that you may be required to file a Schedule C if you recieved a 1099-MISC. As a contractor, you will receive a 1099-MISC after providing services to another. Even if you have not established a business, as long as you provided services and received payment in excess of $600, you must report the amount earned to the IRS and state.

The Taxperts can prepare and file the appropriate forms necessary for you as a sole proprietor or contractor.

Estimated Tax Payments - Income taxes is based on a pay-as-you-go system, requiring taxpayers to pay taxes as they earn income through withholdings or estimated tax payments. Withholdings are the taxes your employer takes from your paycheck to send to the IRS and state. Self-employed taxpayers are not subject to withholdings because they do not have an employer to take taxes from their paycheck. Instead, they must voluntarily pay their taxes during the year. If you pay your taxes at the time you file your tax return on April 15th, the IRS and state will penalize you for not having paid your taxes during the year. The Taxperts can determine the correct amount of estimated tax payments to prevent any future penalties and interest due when you file your tax return.
