I'd like to be familiar with things, before seeing the accountant. One of the companies I vendor for most of the time uses one, and says he's good, but how do I know that?While I'm sure to use one at the end of the year, I'd rather not walk in there with a box full of random receipts. I'd like to be able to know at least what catagories to place them into, plus what expenses I should keep receipts for.I looked at Pub 334, but couldn't get any of the IRS pubs to download. Something wrong with the site. I'm also going to look into the retirement accounts for self employed, IIRC you can put more than the $3000 limit a 401 has.I did look over 334 on the IRS site, unfortunately it reads like a IRS publication (grin).Many of the books I've looked over on self employed (aka small businesses) tend to spend alot of time on how pick one, set it up, and run them, not tax and accounting concerns. I've been doing this long enough, that the business runs well, I've just not been taking the itemized deductions.And since I didn't make it a habit of collecting receipts, I can't go back and amend my returns :(doc
