...for your yearly income? I just got my tax information in today and im not terribly enthused about what i have seen on my tax report.... unlike most of us, right? j/k This past year, was my best year as long as i've been running this small business. On the down side, i feel like i'm spinning my wheels and I'm going nowhere. Is it MY lack of money management? Is it the local economy that has kept prices low for so many years, which keeps me from making decent money? Should I even continue in business at all? These are a few questions that are bombarding me and have essentially taken away all of my motivation and drive for 2005. I hope that some of these questions will be answered according to your responses. Now the question.... What ratio of net income to gross income do you expect out of your business on a yearly basis. Is a 5:7, net to gross ratio satisfactory? Here are the percentages if you prefer... 71% deductible to 29% taxable income. Thanks for your help!
