Sooo, we finally met with our tax guy this afternoon. I was up until after 2 a.m. this morning getting all of my eBay paperwork in order. Procrastinate much? Our taxes are already quite complicated because of some of the benefits my husband gets from his job. (We have to file taxes in every state his company operates in – think I want to try doing that myself? Answer: NO WAY!)
My husband very kindly took our boys out for a walk while I sat and went over everything eBay with the super, amazing, longtime friend of my husband’s family who does our taxes. He was incredibly nice, and quite enthusiastic about my eBay venture, and gave me a big high-five! But also made it quite clear that I need to do a better job (er, start) tracking both when I purchase an item and when it is sold. Technically, I do already have that information, but I track it separately.
Does anybody have a tracking system they love? I am trying to decide if I should just whip up my own excel spreadsheet, or if there is some software already out there that is just waiting to make my life easier. Any information? Please share!
