Shaelene’s Tax Tip of the Week – July 21st

Did you know?

Whether you run your own business or only speak to Shaelene about your personal taxes, consider setting yourself up with Quickbooks Online and Dext (formerly Receipt Bank). Quickbooks is simple, easy, online bookkeeping. Dext allows you to take pictures of all your receipts and invoices so you can upload them to the cloud where we can instantly see them in real time.  While it does cost a monthly subscription fee, you can write it off as an accounting fee – these are reasonable accounting fees that you pay so that you can prepare and file your income tax.  It helps your accountants tremendously when all of your data is organized in a simple web interface.

So, if you donate the full $1275, you’ll receive a tax credit of $650.
