Turbo Tax Estimated Taxes:
If your company has to pay quarterly estimated taxes this program might be right for you. It costs $29.95 for twelve months and includes free quarterly e-filings. This program will calculate your estimated tax payments by following IRS guidelines, which can help you to avoid penalties. The program will send you e-mail reminders so that you will not miss any of your deadlines and will show you just how much you need to pay. You can e-file each quarterly payment and receive a confirmation from the IRS when it is received or you can print out the payment information and mail it in. The best news is that if you are using Turbo Tax to file your income taxes it will automatically transfer your information into Turbo Tax; otherwise it will keep detailed records and provide you with a summary report at the end of the year.
Turbo Tax Home and Business:
This software can be used to file personal and business taxes. It covers taxes for sole proprietors, self-employed, consultants, and contractors. Turbo Tax Home and Business will guide you step by step through the Schedule C, how to categorize business income and expenses, home office deductions, depreciation, and anything else that would be included on your tax return. The step by step guidance is in easy to understand terms about your business and Turbo Tax will take your answers and put them into the correct IRS forms that you will need to file.
