Default First Year Filing Taxes for Business

So, I am a bit lost as far as my taxes go. But I have some time to get caught up with my tax information and things I need to track, etc for the daycare.

So, I've tried many different programs to track my expenses and haven't found a program that works well. Or it costs hundreds of dollars to buy the program. That is not feasible for me.

I have all the information I need in regards to tracking things individually ie: Utilites, food, toys and other day care expenses. I just need a way to get it all put together for taxes. Especially the receipts. Right now they're in a shoe box! ugh.

What is a great program to use? Or are there several. I keep seeing "MMK" in the forum but I can't find what that means.

Default Record Keeping

You can use Minute Menu (www.minutemenu.com) or use Redleaf Calendar-Keeper (www.redleafpress.org) which has monthly charts to record your expenses and lists of expense categories so you can organize your receipts into categories that also appear on the tax forms.

My book Family Child Care Record Keeping Guide lists over 1,000 allowable business deductions and lists each deduction under an expense category that matches your tax forms.
