Can you please provide the best tips to start a business. It's just me selling handmade gifts, digital files, and other trinkets on Etsy and my own website. I haven't been able to successfully launch anything because the legal stuff scares me. I also have a full time job, so this will be a side business. My thoughts were to create an LLC, get a separate bank account, and start, but just not sure if I am missing anything or how to file these taxes correctly. Thanks
First off, congratulations!
Three of your main concerns should be:
Which accounting method to choose
How to pay estimated taxes
Keeping track of expenses
This TurboTax article, Starting a Business, has been updated for 2021 and covers all three areas nicely!
