You can use turbo tax to file your taxes. You enter your income and expenses on Schedule C and file it using the program. I hope this answers your question. If not, then please reply. Thank you.

What is this?Accounting Method
Choose the accounting method your business uses:
Most businesses use the "Cash" method.YesNo
Does your business have inventory or cost of goods sold?
Expert:  Andy4712 replied 8 months ago.

The program asks you questions that do not apply. You don't have inventory. You are on a cash method. It might be easier to switch to forms method and enter you income and expenses. Otherwise, you just need to go through the questions and answer them.

You can just use free tax usa. It looks like it charges you to do the state.

I charge $200 an hour.

I don't do hours. I do how much for taxes, simply like that. One sum.
Expert:  Andy4712 replied 8 months ago.

I would probably have to pay for the state. It really depends upon your situation.

Expert:  Andy4712 replied 8 months ago.

You sure you don't want to to just use your free file.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
i don't want to make mistakes and get audited
Expert:  Andy4712 replied 8 months ago.

Maybe another expert can do it for you. I really don't want to quote a price unless I have all the information.

Expert:  Andy4712 replied 8 months ago.

Also, have not accepted any of my answers so far.

Expert:  Lane replied 8 months ago.

Hi, I can help here. I'll need to make what's called an additional services offer. (I can do so for the smallest amount possible). That will provide a private link that only we can see, in order to exchange contact info (phone/email) and then we can go from there.

...

I helped you with the first question about the 1099

...

Watch for the offer

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Ok please contact me
Expert:  Lane replied 8 months ago.

You'll have to accept the offer (I made it for the smallest amount possible, $5).

...

Once you accept, (we'll get that encrypted field that will allow us to enter contact information confidentially) and I'll enter the office number.
