I am going to try to not be late this year and to try to stay accountable to getting the taxes done.

I do have my 10-99 for 2011, so that is a start.

Next i think I need to take a look at any writeoffs i have. What should I look into?

I have travel expenses for a conference, with meals and maybe lodging.

I have office expenses - new netbook, cell phone bill, paper, printer toner, binders, calendar, stuff like that. I can probably find these receipts.

I don't think i can do the home office deduction.

And then there is the preparation expense. I can do it myself and probably get frustrated and mess it up. I can pay someone like an accountant here in town to do it. i can work on it with my case manager for free. I can use the cheap HR Block set ups in Walmart.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

OKay, according to the IRS site, since i was self employed I have to file a 1040, not the 1040A or 1040 EZ.

I am printing out the instructions download and the 1040 now.
