I am so exhausted from trying to get everything together for my taxes. I swear, every year I say I'm going to be more organized and keep better track of everything. And in the end this year I did better than before, I still have so much crap to go through. And it feels like I should know how to make this simpler. There should be a super simple, intuitive way of organizing and keeping track without having masses of paper and receipts overflowing every corner of my apartment. Any suggestions out there? I would really, really appreciate it.
Any software that you think is great? I'd love to have it all on the computer so my husband and I aren't sitting at the table for hours adding up receipts. Not to mention, neither of us own a real calculator. I was using my Blackberry and he was using his laptop. This is what I want in a perfect world - an accountant who does it all for me. But in a slightly imperfect world I'd take a software program that allows me to itemize my receipts for supplies, equipment, advertising, fees.... I'm sure something out there exists, right? I don't need all of the fancy stuff like "production schedule" and "shipping schedule", although maybe shipping would be helpful. ok, clearly I don't know what I need.
Any suggestions would be wonderful! So wish me luck. Tomorrow I see my accountant and hopefully she doesn't scold me (which she really wouldn't, she's the nicest lady!).
