Tax Review for Direct Sellers

It’s the New Year!  While I know you are busy working on getting sales going again and keeping those resolutions, one thing that you should be thinking about is getting your taxes ready.  I know some people like to file as soon as they possibly can in February so here is some past articles about taxes to help you either finish off your 2012 year or to get 2013 started on the right foot.   Tax
