We don’t want to dampen your enthusiasm – but, it’s far better to make preparations up front rather than suffer a catastrophic tax shock later on.
The IRS can be a vicious and hungry creature. This is especially true in an age when a huge government bureaucracy (not only Washington D.C. but the States and local municipalities) are desperate for your tax dollars.
So pay close attention to all of the following:
Sole Proprietor Tax Filing
A sole proprietor files a Schedule C in conjunction with the individual 1040 income tax return. Profits are taxed as ordinary income and losses reduce your taxable income.

If your sole proprietorship earns $400 or more, you must also file Schedule SE

The IRS Is Targeting The Sole Proprietor
As of January 2010 the word is out that as a result of internal audits by the IRS, an annual revenue collection shortfall of $300 billion dollars per year has been found. The IRS believes that the shortfall is not coming from the large corporations but from the small businesses. The IRS is primarily targeting the sole proprietor — approximately 67% of all small businesses — who file taxes on a 1040 Schedule C return.
Is Your Small Business Operating as a Sole Proprietorship?
If this is you it would be wise to consider converting to one of the forms of corporate entity.
By IRS statistics, if you operate your business as a sole proprietorship, you are 300% more likely to be audited by the IRS, compared to a corporation or LLC.
