Like many of you, I shopped for holiday gifts for family and friends on Black Friday and on Cyber Monday. While I can’t say that my holiday shopping is done, I can say I’m getting an early start on my taxes for the first time ever. That’s right, it’s time to start thinking about tax season! I don’t know about you, but I tend to wait until the last minute to get all of my receipts and paperwork together. Being a small business owner means I keep track of everything I purchase for my business. Last year was incredibly stressful, I waited until the last minute (even though I said I wouldn’t). I definitely learned my lesson and never want to do that again.
If tax season stresses you out too, you’re in luck! CPA and Tax Expert Lisa Greene-Lewis joined me for an interview to share tips on how you can boost your tax refund in 2018! Lisa dished on everything from itemized vs standard deductions to how to contribute the maximum to retirement accounts. She discussed why it’s so important to watch your flexible spend accounts, how to maximize your deductions with charitable contributions and why you might want to defer your bonus until 2019! If you’re a small business owner you will definitely want to hear the amazing tips Lisa shared.
