    Dont forget though that you will have to submit an estimated payment by the 15th even if you file for an extension.

    I was able to pay my 2003 taxes but my quarterlies are going to be a week late. :( Just don't have enough $$$$$. All of that coming due at the same time bites. Every year I pay more on my quarterlies thinking I will not owe as much at the end of the year and every year I make just enough more that it doesn't work.

    Yup, The 'OLE CPA got back with me yesterday. BIG one this year. Seems like a made a little bit more than last year, and Paying ALOT more than last year!

    I've determined that I am going to spend this year, and not be so conservative. I think the first purchase is a new PC!

    Do you get to Write off what you purchase? Is that how this works? I am going to have to do Taxes for the first time next year so i have got to get up to date with all this Stuff and also get an accountant or someone reliable and accurate.

    I've had mine done for a couple months, but I'm waiting 'till tommorrow to send it in. The way I figure is it's basically an interest free loan from the IRS!

    Hey collegiate- Get a copy of quickbooks if you don't have one. That was one of the best decisions I made when I started my business.

    Why would you spend $1 to save 33 cents? If you dont need the equipment, then just grin and bear it.
