Are you ready for your self-employed taxes this year? Why or why not?
I do my own taxes with TurboTax and am still finishing up my year-end reports. I have to wait for 1099s to come in though so usually I don’t do my taxes until about March. I think everyone is eager for the New Year but it is important to organize loose ends from 2016 first.

Yes, I agree. I need to get everything organized soon.
