Join tax expert Abby Eisenkraft for a class to learn all about self-employment tax reporting.  Just in time for tax season! As always, there will also be free food and plenty of opportunity to network!

The presentation will include:

  • Allowable deductions for the self-employed – we will do a deep dive on Schedule C and discuss what is legally deductible and what is not (regardless of what tax advice people get from their “friends”!)
  • How to keep your records per IRS regulations
  • Other taxes you may be subject to (not just ordinary income tax, but self-employment tax, MCTMT tax, etc.)
  • How to set up online accounts to pay the Taxing Authorities electronically
  • Home Office – Regular and Safe Harbor rules
  • Due Dates (estimated taxes, LLC filing, entity filings, etc.)
  • What to expect if your small business is audited, and how to survive it
  • Best practices
