Pay less money to your tax advisor and the IRS for 2007! [http://forums.ebay.com/thread.jspa?t...e=CMDV:WC0657]
This workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 16th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Pacific time.
During our December workshop we discussed getting your business records ready for your tax preparer. During our next workshop, Phyllis Wischer, business Success Coach from Certified Provider KeepMore.net, will discuss the importance of getting not only your eBay business records ready but getting all your tax records organized and ready for your tax preparer. By following some simple procedures to get your records organized, you should be able to pay less money to your tax advisor to prepare your tax return; and, hopefully, be able to keep more of your hard earned dollars in your pocket.
