To avoid this, use WorkingPoint’s Estimated Tax Report to find out how much you’re likely to owe in taxes.

What are Tax Reports and Why Should I Run Them?

Tax Reports help you prepare your taxes, whether you pay them monthly, quarterly or yearly. Tax reports are typically tax form specific – meaning a specific tax report helps you fill out a specific tax form, for example, a 1099 report helps you complete the IRS Form 1099.

Small business tax information and reporting can be intimidating, especially if you are not a tax professional. Using tax reports can help make filing your taxes easier by transforming your business activity from the way it makes sense to you, to the way it make sense to the IRS and other tax agencies. Tax reports can help you save time and avoid stressing out over what you owe to agencies and how much by helping you track the information you need to file a specific report.
