taxhelpI’m N.S. Smith, a published author and a registered tax preparer in the state of California.

As an author I know what a hassle doing taxes can be, from knowing what you can write off–and what you can’t or shouldn’t–to understanding whether or not I need to pay estimated taxes or not and how the heck am I supposed to fill in that form? I’ve struggled through every one of these questions for myself at  one point or another.

As a tax preparer, I know the answers to these questions or how to find out. I can walk you through the forms you need and help you determine which forms you’ll need to file and how to fill those forms out.

I’ll be doing weekly posts here, but I also offer a Tax Tips for Authors course with lectures and plenty of Q&A in the group as well as privately if you don’t want the others to know your business.

And I’m writing an upcoming book incorporating everything, plus a lot more. Stay tuned for updates about that.

Feel free to ask questions in the comments, subscribe to this blog and consider signing up for one of my very reasonably priced courses.
