    My accountant makes it it effortless.. I do hate paying, but It's our duty and there is nothing we can do about that. So I really don't give it much thought or lose any sleep over it.

    Do estimated quarterlies druing the year...that way you won't have to pay so much all at once.

    OUt of ALL of the parts of this job (actual production - mowing, trimming, mulching, etc.; sales, employee supervision, customer contact, accounting/bookeeping etc.) handling the TAXES is the part I HATE THE MOST!

    What a pain. I get all kinds of notices/correspondence as well as making Quarterly Deposits & Monthly Payments for TAXES. WHAT A FREAKING PAIN!

    Do you get the point? I HATE DEALING WITH THE TAXES.

    Soupy and Rodfather basically explained it in a nutshell.

    I don't have a problem with tax season. I already have all of my tax information filled out. My accountant makes it easy as well. Just waiting for my wifes W-2 for I can take it into my accountant and I will be done.
