I recently became an independent consultant so that I can stay at home with my 3 1/2 yr old. But now I’m worried I’m going to miss out on some write offs during the year. I know you have tax.filer kit, but is that what I’m looking for? I want to stay organized. Thanks.

One of the best things to do is to sit down with your accountant and also do a bit of on line research on what items you can deduct.  Then keep all of those receipts including all credit card statements over the year.  While we do not make a product for this, a great thing to get is an expandable file folder that has enough pockets to easily sort all of your receipts.  It is not too hard once you get started.  Let us know how it goes.  Alicia
