I will assist today.

As long as you have a balance sheet from last year that balances, we should be okay. If that doesn't balance, start with your copy from last year. If you printed one, best. If not, pull it up from last year's TurboTax.

For the end of year balances, if cash is the only asset, that's easy. Cash and total assets are 9870.

Liabilities at year end: do not claim employee salaries as liabilities. Liabilities at year end should be 0.

If you paid your 2011 Federal and NJ taxes, the tax liabilities at year end should be $0.

Stock balance won't change from year to year.

Retained earnings will be last year's balance plus earnings.

If you follow this outline, your balance sheet will be well on the way to balancing.

Please advise if you can reproduce the balance sheet from the prior year, and your draft of what you have so far, and I can offer more pointed advice.
