    Topic:  It’s Tax Time

    Schedule C – guide to avoid tax issues.  What makes someone “self-employed”? Is it the same as a sole proprietor?  Does a self-employed business owner need an identification number in order to be recognized by the IRS as a business?  How does someone get one? Is there a way to do this electronically?  When must businesses file tax returns? What tax forms do sole proprietors fill out?  How long should a business keep their records?  Why is it important to keep good records?  What are requirements for being a home-based business?  what are requirements for using a part of your home for business?  Tax Gap: seems to imply that people were avoiding paying taxes.

    Why start your own business and market a Maine product?  What are the direct costs are that are associated with buying locally?  What are some of the “costs” associated with inexpensive foods or products (that are not local)?  How does this all connect with the thought that if you use $1 locally it rolls over 7 times in the local economy?
