Since it’s tax season here are a couple of quick tips to make your next tax reporting season a breeze!


  • Photocopy (or scan and backup on a separate drive to print later) all business-related receipts, tax slips and any other necessary paper work as it comes in throughout the year.  It may seem tedious, but truly it’s a simple discipline that saves me hours of headaches when tax time rolls around.  Schedule it for once a week if that works better for you, but just do it!


  • Mileage Logs are crucial!  Make sure you have yours.  Especially those of us who use our vehicles for both personal and business, I encourage you to keep a log that includes the following for each business trip for the entire year:  Date, destination, reason for the trip and the distance covered (including the odometer readings will also help to determine the percentage of business vs. personal use).
