Some people don’t want to start something completely new. For these people, it may be a good idea to look into franchising. Franchising allows you to use a larger company’s brand, which can help you to get customers. Many people think that franchises are only for fast food restaurants, but this isn’t the case. Some franchises that you can run from home are business license, tutoring, and music lessons.
Let’s start with the most popular free software, Turbo Tax. This free software can be downloaded online easily and quickly from Intuit’s website and it is very easy to use. Unfortunately, Turbo Tax free edition will only allow you to file simple forms like the 1040EZ, but it doesn’t include all tax forms like the deluxe or premier edition which are not free. This free edition will also constantly push you to upgrade to the commercial edition, but if you don’t mind the constant advertisements, this is a great software that will quickly file your federal taxes for free and your state taxes for a low, one time fee.
How many tax returns have you prepared? Obviously, the more the better. If this person has only done a handful of returns over the years, he just hasn’t dealt with enough situations to adequately understand the complex world of taxes. If the answer if less than 1,000 you should probably look elsewhere.
Now, the first thing is that you have to love yourself. I don’t mean you have to fall in love with your image. I mean truly love who you are on the inside. Sit down and write out a list of your good traits. If you can’t think of any, think of someone you respect and admire. Write a few of their traits and realize that you will probably have those same traits in yourself somewhere. You are a loving person who really wants to help others (even if you haven’t done it yet), you are honest, you have good taste in clothes, you like puppies, anything that you can think of that is good. It doesn’t have to be a save-the-world trait, just something that you can say is a part of you. Once this is complete, appreciate these things. Know that it is good to be you and start there.
Well, now you have to face the problem. If you keep burying your head in the sand, you will miss all the wonders in life as they pass by as well as success in your business.
Lastly, there is no need to get overwhelmed over tax preparation. Make sure that you secure all your tax forms early so filing would be a much smoother process. In the end, if you set things right, you may even have a check in return!
