Hi BHW! I'm new to this community and hoping to share some information I learned while running my business. I have an online business that I started 10 months ago while having a full-time job. I recently resigned from my company to put more time into my current business that generates double my salary. I haven't registered my business and don't have an accountant. I been keeping track of my own books with quickens (very easy) and plan to do my taxes with my business income and my full-time job I had this year. Next year will be filing taxes just with my business income or filing jointly with my wife. Here are some questions if you could give me your opinion: 1. I'm going to register my business with legal zoom. Should I go the LLC or DBA route? it will be just me running my business. 2. Should I file my business separately or jointly with my wife's full-time job income for tax purposes? Best way to save on taxes? I'm using quicken books and will export my taxes to turbo tax every quarter I'm assuming? 3. When naming my business should I use my website name or a generic name like Junior82? I don't want people seeing all my websites under my business name. 4. Once owning and operating an online business what legal things should I be concerned about? Should I use legal zoom attorney consultations for questions? Any other things I should be aware of regarding business operations, taxes, legal, etc. would be great. I'm asking these things because some people on here I notice are accountant by reading their threads. A lot of people on BHW are running successful businesses. Thank you & God Bless!
