TODAY’S TIP: Save every receipt, no matter how small. Why “tip” the taxman? Place an envelope in your truck for collecting your receipts and send them at the end of each month to your business services provider, who can then create a monthly profit and loss statement as well as accurate quarterly tax estimates. Your financial services provider will tell you if an item is not tax-deductible.
