Great ideas, ladies!

I need to start tracking my 'business expenses' more faithfully. There's a lot I can write off. 2012 will have more than 2011. (I'm day-to-day I'm mostly an employee, but to the government, I'm a contractor... Whatever)

Making sure to stay on top of everything and not let it pile up. It takes less than a minute to get receipts out of my purse and into the system - not plopping them on the desk is the key laugh

I need to find the last few papers I need to take with me for my taxes.

I updated our medical deduction spreadsheet today. I need to add a column for mileage. Just thought of that.

All my stuff is now on the dining table, including pencil, eraser, calculator and pen. It's a start!

I forgot to put taxes on my JDI posting - I suspect this was a subconscious wish to ignore them. : D

i almost feel bad saying this, but it might help some one. i have a folder labeled current taxes. it's a lot easier for me to put everything in there as i get it through out the yr. i also have a list of things i get statements for once/yr (like end of yr bank statements, yours might include stock acct, bond acct, annuity acct, w2s)

this makes it real easy to make sure i have everything. then all i need to do is fill out forms
