In my first year of business, I decided to handle my own taxes.
I didn’t make that much money from photography that year and I told myself that I couldn’t “afford” an accountant.
This was one of the biggest mistakes I ever made and trust me when I say I paid for it later.
Tax season is one of the most stressful times of the year, which is why I’m excited to have Trevor Mckendrick on the show today.
