I am going to start working as an Uber Driver. It is considered an independent contractor and I understand that I will be subject to double taxation from the Self Employment tax. Are there options for me to avoid/minimize that additional tax (i.e. form a business entity...), and is there an income threshold I would need to meet in order to see any savings?
I own a home in California. My property taxes are in escrow
I own a home in California. My property taxes are in escrow and included in my monthly mortgage premium. Because of financial hardship in 2015, I did not pay many of my mortgage payments, (which of course includes my property tax payments). I am now in modification with my lender and expect to save the house and continue living in the property. Can I still deduct my total property tax bill for 2015 on my 2015 income taxes?

I am an EA and am expanding my practice to include payroll
I am an EA and am expanding my practice to include payroll and bookkeeping. I am trying to figure out the best way to inexpensively service my client. I have a number of 1-2 man S Corps who see the tax advantages of Incorp, but now need to do better bookkeeping and payroll. I was told Intuit has a great inexpensive service but did not really see the prcing for it. I heard as an accountant user (I am a pro advisor) my part if very inexpensive. But what does the client have to pay if not QB already?? Also, my bookkeeper has been extolling on the advantages of Zero on line. My clients need little bookkeeping and the simplest of payrolls. Can you tell me how it works and the best way to charge the client? I can handle charging for my services, but I am not sure what the options are on QBs and Zero, not to mention on line vs desktop.
