Accountants will ask questions that programs won't. At least the good ones will.

I agree 100%.

We use QuickBooks, and we calculate quite a bit of stuff at 'end of year' for our accountant...but he still always manages to come up with several things (often 'new' tax laws) to save us money. The cost of the accounting service is totally negligable in comparison to the OVERALL COST SAVINGS he provides.

TAX DVD's sold???

In Texas, does a videographer need to collect tax for DVD's sold? The DVD's are of a school play and weddings.

Thanks

Yes, and if you charge for shipping, it gets taxed as well. Here are some good links for you.

Since I'm currently, I use the word currently with hope, dual employed, I can't see myself sitting down and doing my taxes. We do however use quickbooks to keep the books, but tax time, I pay someone. I'd go nuts.

That'd be my 4 cents.
