Business Assets

We purchased a computer for use in our home-based business. The computer was purchased in Oct. 2010, and we are making monthly payments on it. For our tax returns this year do we report the cost of the computer as what we actually paid ( 3 payments) towards its purchase in 2010 or the actual total cost of the computer?

My husband and his brother started a logging company and so they pulled the money they had left over after paying everything and split it between them and so how does that affect mine and my husband's taxes?

Home Business

by Cynthia
(Riverside, California)

My husband and I both have small businesses we run from home. On our taxes, where you can deduct a portion of household expenses for having a homebase business, do we each claim these expenses or can only one of us claim them? (house payment,insurance, utilities, etc.)

Small Business Tax Question...

by Michael
(Oakland, OR)

Hello,

My fiance owns a very small cleaning business and earned less than $9,000 last year. Does she still have to file? If she has to file and ends up owing, what if she can't afford to pay the taxes owed. Also, do you know of any tax credits or anything she can file to help if she does have to file. Thanks.

Michael~

We have filed a loss on our business for about the past three years. My husband, during this time, became ill. Can we file for Medicaid even though we own a business but filed a loss?

Starting a housekeeping business in NYS

by Shelby
(Albany NY)

I have been cleaning houses for some extra income and would like to do this as a more formal business. I need to track my income and write off my expenses. What do I need to do to "get on the books"? I have no employees...just me and make about $400/wk.

Starting a Small Business

Hello. My family has not filed taxes in 5 yrs since our only income is from my husband's SSDI. This summer, we started selling produce and baked goods at the local farmers market. It really took off, and over the summer, I'd say we made about $4000. I also have a long list of receipts for seeds, ingredients, business cards, office supplies, etc. Rough estimate, around $1000 or so.

Should I file and try to get reimbursed for some of the expenses? Am I required to have a business license and be a "Real" business in order to do that?

If I should file, what form would I use?


Hello,

Thank you for your question.

You are required to file if you made over $400 in self-employment income. You will be able to claim expenses to offset the income. Since you made under $5,000 you should be able to file the small business form Schedule C-EZ.

by Sam

I sold all my stock last year in small business I started. Acquired it (no cost basis) 12 years ago when I started the company. Would it qualify for a section 1202 exclusion of up to 50% of the capital gain as a qualified small business?
