Default Need tax help!!

I've taken over the business end of the company and I'm learning by the seat of my pants. I've come across something that I dont know how to do.

Quickbooks is showing me that we owe something called "CT Unemployment Insurance" for Q4 2012. Its due on 1/31/13. Problem is, I dont know how to pay it!

I called the state of CT but of course, they were already out of the office by the time I seen this and called.

If anyone can help me with this I'd really appriciate it! I know a lot of you have your own businesses, so I'm hoping someone might know.

filing 1099s today - going through the books, I realized how much was spent on miata stuffs that I have to claim as personal - H O L Y C R A P ! I know, I know - need to keep personal separated from business - but it shouldn't hurt as long as I claim it as such, just more work

AL doesn't have an unemployment tax like that - at least that I'm not aware of. Maybe it's covered under the "business priviledge" tax we have to pay each year.

I just got off the phone with the state.

The website you linked is the right place, but the login isn't working for me. So now I need to get back to the shop by 3, print the check and have it postmarked by 5. ****. Lol

Try not to physically assault the bank teller or the person at the post office. That will make things go a lot more smoothly.

I use quickbooks.
Once you set it up, you click a few buttons, and bam, it's paid.

I dropped off my Federal and California returns at the post office this morning. Nobody was harmed in the process, and the lady at the counter smiled and me and told me to have a nice day.

It occurs to me that I accidentally committed mail fraud in the process. While she was processing the return receipt and certification, she asked me the usual litany of questions to the effect of "Does this contain anything fragile, perishable, flammable, liquid, any lithium batteries, etc?"

I replied that it did not, despite the fact that both enveloped contained several sheets of paper, which is extremely flammable.

I will now live in fear.

Neither the IRS nor the State of California support online filing for people who are self-employed and made quarterly estimated tax payments. I have no idea why this is.

Back when I was a W2'er, I used the software products of either H&R or Intuit. The first year I went to file as 1099, I found that neither of them were properly handling my Schedule C Part II expenses. So I decided to try doing it the "old fashioned" way and just use the raw IRS forms.

To my surprise, I actually found this to be faster, easier and more intuitive than the commercial tax-prep systems I'd used, principally because they tended to abstract the data that you were entering from its official locations on the forms, thus rendering the instructions printed in things like Pub 463 nearly useless.


It's actually quite slick. Both the Fed and CA provide you with downloadable forms in PDF format. These forms have highlighted fields in which you enter your data, and they can be saved to your PC (with all contents intact) even if you're only using the free Acrobat reader.

For most taxpayers, you can then submit the data electronically. In my situation, I have to print and mail. Not a big deal- there's a post office which is nearly on my way to work.

I drove around like a nutcase to get the envelope dropped off at the post office with just about 15 mins to spare.

Nobody was hurt and nothing was damaged in the process. lol

I need to call the accountant and have a meeting with him to go over **** like this. We need to know when **** is due, how often and where to send it.

When I do payroll every week I know I need to pay the state wh and 941's, but this unemployment insurance payment popped out of the blue.
