excel spreadsheet for tax purposes
This year I want to try and be alittle more organized so I am not stressing out at the end of the year for tax purposes. Does anyone have any good advice on how to keep track of everything on a spread sheet. What now all I have is all more orders and mapquest with mileage for every closing I did. But I want to try and simpilfy things for my accountant. Any suggestions. I don't know much about quick books. Is that hard to set up.

Check your email. I apparently am not permitted to name the software that I use.

Quickbooks is so easy to use! It provides all the reports and even imports into Turbo Tax. I love it. The snapshot allows me to view a variety of reports at once, income, expenses, A/R and is customizable. I would not want to use excel to track my business.

It is a great idea to also track/count your stamps as you are not required to pay taxes on income related to the notary act as you are a civil servant.

Is it your stamps or the number of signatures you notarize? Sometimes there are more than one signature of a document but only one notary stamp

In FL it's per notarial act, not per signature. n/m

<< you are not required to pay taxes on income related to the notary act >>
I thought that applied to self-employment taxes ONLY?
