Welcome to our forum.

This is a really watered down explanation. Keep track of your income and expenses and file it all in your taxes along with your job income. If you have someone helping you file, just present them with your account information from your business and you should be all set.

What kinds of things are you doing to promote your business in order to reach your growth goals?
