Sales tax is one of the necessary evils of doing business. And, each state has their own rules, making it a convoluted topic.

The best place to find information about your state is to visit that tax authority (see below). If you can't find the answers to your questions on your state's site, don't hesitate to call them directly. They should have someone knowledgable available to talk to directly.

I've also included a link to a handy sales tax calculator.

That is fantastic!

Do you offer some sort of intro business over the phone consulting session? Like 1/2 hour or hour long where you can talk with a new business owner and tell them what they need, accounting wise, to get up to speed? So they don't mess anything up their first year?

I hadn't thought of doing that, but it is a great idea! What I plan on doing is putting together a getting started, bookkeeping 101 type 'booklet'.

What kind of topics would you like to see covered in something like that?
Tracking income/expenses
Reporting
Banking
Payroll

Anything else?

If anyone wants to talk it out, please feel free to email me and we can set up a time to talk!

That would be fantastic. I guess my thoughts on additions to it would depend on who you are trying to target.

If it is new business startups. Maybe talk about how they can get their business name registered. How to get a commercial bank account. What they need to collect sales tax on. How to get a sales tax certification.

Maybe as we read what you get together we can add more thoughts to it then as well
