Get your taxes done using TurboTax

I run my own business on the cash basis method. Accrual just doesn't make sense to me, because I don't want to pay taxes on money until I physically have it in my hands and under my direct control.  So with the cash method, expenses are claimed in the tax year they are paid. Period. Income is reported in the tax year it is received. Period.
