For years I have done my own taxes to save money. This year is no different... or so I thought. I've spent the past week trying to get everyhing together to pay my taxes and I am amazed at the disorganization, my disorganization. What makes it worse is that I know better. As the business manager foe a design firm, I'm very organized and keep excellent records. What I now realize is that in my own business--yes, being a working artist is a business--I am as disorganized as I am organized at work. My advice? Don't wait until April 2010 to start working on your books. Get things set up now and keep them updated as you go.
