Basically I have done very little work this year. I was planning on learning this year and getting started next year. Fortunately I got sucked into some work and learned some lessons this year that will help me next year. My question is should I file business taxes? I work fulltime, and do this part time. I have spent more on my business this year than I have made. I am a sole-proprietorship. I need to find an accountant, is it best to find one now, or wait until tax season? How will they charge me? I know during tax season they charge a flat rate....how about during the offseason? Thanks for all your help.
