Indinero, Xero, Outright, Quickbooks - which is best for running a SaaS business? Why?
So far none of the answers seem to address your specific questions - which are around revenue recognition and taxes for a SAAS (software-as-a-service) business. The short answer on revenue recognition for any software business, including SAAS-based ones, is that none of the four you mention can handle it in any automated manner. You have no choice but to use a spreadsheet and then enter the results in your system, or go further up the food chain to Intaact or Netsuite or similar. Which is more expensive and may be overkill depending on stage of your business. Software revenue recognition is one of the most complex accounting issues a small company can have and needs tight coordination and rules between the finance folks and the sales and other groups in the business. Structures of contractual sales agreements, bundling of software and services (what's called "multi-element arrangements"), pricing and discounting can all help recognize revenue when you truly earn it - or totally blow it. You can usually simplify this if you are a 100%-SAAS company but you still need to manage carefully. All this got more complex with recent rule changes where - as usual - attempts to simplify the rules made everything worse!Taxes? Well, depends on what taxes you mean. As a SAAS company you likely will not be liable to charge and collect sales taxes under most regimes (but check carefully on this with your advisors). Federal and State taxes - yes, Quickbooks and most accounting packages will enable you to track things like deductible vs. non-deductible travel & entertainment, prepare and file 1099 forms for contractors etc.. None of these packages actually prepare returns but you can export from QuickBooks to TurboTax - which helps the data entry etc - for simple returns. You'll likely need a tax accountant to actually prepare and file returns unless your business is very simple.From what I know, Indinero is not an accounting package (and they specifically say they are not trying to do accounting). Of the others, Quickbooks is the clunky gold standard. Wish there was something better. Tip: go with the online (SAAS!) version!
What is the cheapest way for me to do my taxes for my 1099 MISC form?
Yes, always go for cheap. The problem here is that you can find free or almost free tax prep services. You can go to what appears to be cheap retail tax prep chains. You can buy cheap tax software. You can do all these things cheaply. Or so it appears.The problem is that your “cheap” solution may be the most expensive solution you will ever encounter. So you do it yourself, because you have a cheap software program. Guess what? You just shot yourself in the foot. Unless, of course, you know all the ins and outs of the tax law. Unless you have a good grasp of the relevant portions of 38.000 pages of tax gobbly-goop, written by lawyers, for lawyers, in a language that only approximates English. Unless, of course, you kept up with the hundreds of changes that occurred during the year, including the Code, Regulations, Revenue Procedures, and tax court cases. Don’t bet that your $ 45 tax program did that. They didn’t. They can’t.If you believe that you know enough to properly complete a Schedule C with the lowest amount of tax with no formal training in tax law and without spending at least 40 hours a year in refresh training, you are deluding yourself. “But it’s only a simple tax return.” Sure, you have convinced yourself. Maybe, probably not.If you think a CPA is “too expensive” then you have just been seduced by the power of advertising. You have succumbed to the siren call of ego empowerment. Is it arrogance? Is it false confidence? Gee, I don’t know. What I do know is that a good CPA can usually save a client many times their cost. It may not happen on one return, but over a series of years, the advice, counsel, planning and technical expertise you get with a CPA or EA will pay handsome dividends. Over my 40 years of practice, I have seen many self and tax prep chain prepared returns, and in virtually all of the cases have found something that would have saved the taxpayer lots of money. More than justified the cost.But, of course, these are intangibles, unquantifiables. You know exactly what that cheap tax prep software costs, so focus on that. Forget about the hundreds or thousands of dollars in extra taxes you will pay because you don’t know the ins and outs of the law. Actually, the IRS once did a study on this and found that most taxpayers overpay their taxes. Kinda seems contrary to what you would expect, right? I mean when they audit you, they want more money. That’s correct. Oh, and when you self-prepare, you are on your own if you are challenged. No problem, right? If you buy into that, please, you need serious reality therapy. The tax system is an adversarial system. You wouldn’t face a Ninja with a water squirt pistol would you?Enough said. SWSWSW. Some will, some won’t, so will it be. Sorry I ranted on about this, but I have faced this issue with so many people, including members of my family, and it’s a sore point. I just hate to see people overpay their taxes deceived into thinking they got a “deal” on some cheap tax software.
It is my first time filing a 1099. How do I do it?
You received a 1099-MISC from someone who paid you for work you did last year.You must report the income on your personal tax return and you must pay both income tax and self-employment tax (Social Security/Medicare) on this income. Here are the details:What do I do with the 1099-MISC form I received?A 1099-MISC form is used to report amounts paid to non-employees (independent contractors and other businesses to whom payments are made).Non-employees receive a 1099-MISC each year at the same time as employees receive W-2 forms--that is, at the end of January--so the information can be included in the recipient's income tax return.If you are doing your own tax return using a tax software program, you will be asked if you have any 1099 income. At this point, you can include the information from the form you received.If you are having a tax preparer do your personal return, give the form to your preparer along with your other documents.Do I have to pay Social Security and Medical taxes on 1099 income?Yes. Every U.S taxpayer must pay Social Security and Medicare taxes on his or her income. For self-employed individuals, these taxes are called self-employment taxes. Self-employment taxes are calculated on the individual's federal income tax return based on the net income from the business.How do I include 1099 income on my tax return?How you report 1099-MISC income on your income tax return depends on the type of business you own.If you are a sole proprietor or single-member LLC owner, you report 1099 income on Schedule C - Profit or Loss from business. When you complete Schedule C you report all business income and expenses. Reporting business expenses, like fees paid to professionals, purchases of business supplies or equipment, and business office expenses, reduce the net income from your business.The net income from your Schedule C is included on Line 12 of your personal income tax return along with all other sources of income, including income as an employee and investment income. Your personal income taxes are determined by your total adjusted gross income.Why aren't taxes taken out of my 1099-MISC income?Employers are not required to withhold federal income taxes from non-employees, except in specific circumstances discussed below (as backup withholding). Employers also do not withhold Social Security and Medicare taxes from non-employees.Do I have to pay self-employment taxes on 1099 income if I have FICA taxes withheld from employment income?Yes, if you have 10099 income you are considered to be self-employed, and you will need to pay self-employment taxes (Social Security and Medicare taxes) on this income. This is true even if you don't file a Schedule C.Social Security taxable wages are capped at a maximum each year. First, wages from employment are considered, then self-employment income, until the annual maximum taxable income level is reached.There is not maximum on Medicare taxes, so all employment and self-employment income is subject to Medicare tax. Read more about combining self-employment taxes and FICA taxes.Why was income tax withheld from my 1099-MISC income?In most cases, no federal income taxes are withheld from non-employees. But there is one circumstance in which the IRS requires backup withholding. In this case, if the non-employee has not provided a taxpayer ID number or if the taxpayer ID is missing or invalid, the IRS sends a notice to the payee requiring that backup withholding begin.
How do I file the federal and state income taxes if I am doing it for the first time?
Congratulations on the job and now the scary part of reporting your income to the Feds and possibly the State.There are a couple of ways to go here and really no right or wrong way of doing your taxes…it depends on how easy or potentially complex you feel your return might be.Online tax services are rather easy to use, are inexpensive and some do the Federal return for free…only charging for the State return. The charges vary from to another but should normally be under $20 for a basic nothing fancy return.There are firms like H&R Block or Jackson-Hewlett or Liberty who will be happy to do your return (DO NOT DO THE RAPID REFUND • they charge for this) for a fee. The average fee is around $150 I believe.A CPA or professional tax person will be quite happy to do the tax return, but they are the most expensive way to go and I would suggest that since you work for a company and this is your first return, you probably don't need that expert a service yet.I would google online tax services or go to Irs.org to see what you think about doing it yourself. While I use FreeTaxUSA I am specifically not going to endorse them over TurboTax or H&R Block online or any other service…depends on what seems to work for you. They are all decent programs and each seems to have their quirks.Try the online services is what I recommend.
I don't have the money to pay just to submit my taxes. Is there any legitimate site that lets you submit your tax returns for free?
Of course there is! The IRS, like the tax authority in every other developed country, has a free online application that provides you with a pre-filled form with all your personal information and all your W2s and 1099s (which they already have on file) already entered for you. If there are no changes, just click to submit.Except, there isn’t.Those great public benefactors, Quicken (publisher of TurboTax) and HR Block, have lobbied Congress for years to prevent the IRS from developing an easy pre-filled application, let alone a free e-file. They fight against every attempt to simplify the tax code, which they see as a direct threat to their hugely profitable tax software sales. Most recently their lobbyists have sponsored legislation, currently progressing through both the House and Senate, to make it illegal for the IRS to EVER develop such a program.Free online tax filing? Yeah, that'll soon be illegalThe bill is quaintly named the “Taxpayer First Act”, which is clearly a shortened form of the true title - the “Taxpayer First Pay Off Our Contributors Act”. The much trumpeted “Free TurboTax” is less than useless to many of the lowest paid, who are frequently paid as part time contractors these days by firms evading their responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act, and therefore have to deal with a 1099.
Does the TurboTax business e-file also submit w-2, 1099, and k-1 to IRS?
I assume this is for an S-corporation.A Form 1120S submission through TurboTax Business does include the IRS copies of Schedule K-1 for the shareholders, but it does not include the IRS or state copies of either Form W-2 or Form 1099-MISC. You generally need a separate package to file those, or mail them with the appropriate cover form.You also have to prthe shareholders with their copy of Schedule K-1, and your employees and contractors with their W-2 or 1099-MISC; the IRS does not do that for you.
How different is filing taxes in India versus filing taxes in the USA?
Filing taxes in these two countries isn't much of a difference. Some common forms:India - Form-16USA - W-2All income from other sources can be filed using the 1099 series forms in the USA while in India we have the ITR-4, ITR-4s and so on.The good part for tax payers is that in both countries the return filing process has become completely automated and online. The best way to make a comparison of the 2 would be by having a look at these site:India - Income Tax eFiling Fy14-15 - QuickoUSA  - TurboTax® Tax Preparation Software, FREE Tax Filing, Efile Taxes, Income Tax Returns - TurbotaxCheers
Is it worth paying TurboTax to file my taxes?
TurboTax AKA Intuit Software provides programs you can run on your Windows or Mac computer, or online, to help create and file your tax return. You are doing the work, and taking the responsibility. If your tax situation is very simple, it is free.copied from their web site Turbotax.com:“50 million hard-working taxpayers can file their simple federal and state taxes for free. You can file with TurboTax Free Edition if you only have the following situations:W-2 incomeLimited interest and dividend income reported on a 1099-INT or 1099-DIVClaim the standard deductionEarned Income Tax Credit (EIC)Child tax creditsSituations not covered in TurboTax Free Edition include:Itemized deductions (Schedule A)Business or 1099-MISC income (Schedule C)Stock sales (Schedule D)Rental property income (Schedule E)Credits, deductions and income reported on schedules 1-6, such as the Student Loan Interest Deduction”Using such a program like Turbotax or Taxcut (HR Block) is definitely worth it, and usually costs less than having a tax accountant do it.
What should my first-time-tax-filer friend do?
Form 4506-T can be used by someone who did not file a return for the specified tax year. Box 8 allows the individual to request a transcript of any information returns (W-2, 1098, 1099, and 5498) that the IRS has. Note that this is just a transcript of the Federal information from the document, not the actual document itself, and does not include state or local information - the individual may have to contact the state tax department to get that data. It can take up to 45 days for the IRS to process the request. The individual should request the original W-2s from the employer(s) involved if he does not have them, but the Federal return can be reconstructed from the transcripts without the originals if need be. Once the individual has the W-2s then I recommend a visit to a tax professional - not necessarily an attorney, at this point, since there's no question of tax evasion here that I see.For 2022. the individual should try to file by the 15th if at all possible. I'd suggest using one of the online packages (from my experience TurboTax, Block At Home, TaxSlayer, and TaxAct are all good) or checking out the Free File options at http://www.irs.gov/uac/Free-File:-Do-Your-Federal-Taxes-for-Free first before committing to using a professional - not that I or any of my colleagues would turn down a paying client, mind you, but with most first-time taxpayers the situation is likely to be relatively straightforward and income is likely to be low enough to qualify for one of the free file choices.
