If you are starting a business and want to calculate your taxable income,you need to figure out how much you earn. How much you make depends on how much you spendand the deductions that you take. The simpler you can determine your income, the easier it is to file your taxes.
In the past, this was very difficult to figure out. But as of October 1, 2017, it is now much easier to do. The IRS has made it easier to figure out your income, deductions, and exemptions, and you can still claim the standard deduction. This means that the more you earn, the less you have to pay in taxes.
But how do you figure out how much you’re paid? You’ll need to use a simple worksheet that lets you enter your gross earnings and deductions and see how much you’re left with for federal and state taxes. This is especially helpful if you’re a self-employed person or someone who earned money through a third-party like a CPA. If you’re a self-employed person, your income probably isn’t that high.
This is the best part. How much you earn is more than just your income taxes. It’s also your business expenses. The standard deduction takes care of much of your business expenses, and the other side of the tax equation is what you pay in income taxes. So this worksheet can show you the amount you pay in taxes, how much your business is actually earning, and how much youre left with for your income taxes.
I’ve used this worksheet in the past to show the percentage of the tax I pay when I work, and to show the amount of the tax I pay when I don’t work. It’s a quick-and-dirty way to figure out your business deductions. It works for me, but I think it is overkill for most people.
We are a small team so we’ve made this work for us. But it does require a little bit of fiddling before you can get things to work. It may not be for everyone.
