    Hey everyone! I am currently in the process of interviewing possible VAs over skype! Super weird feeling to be interviewing people that are much older than me.

    I was wondering how I would deal with this expense when taxes come? How would I write this off if I am not going to be providing them with any documents? How do you guys do it?

    Also, if any of you guys have any suggestions of questions I should ask them, please share. I surely forgot something as this is my first time, thanks!

    OP don't put the cart before the horse...

    You need to learn the ropes and start making money first...

    Just log your time spent on these issues, worrying about tax is not relevant right now...

    You have a long hard road ahead making money before you will have to pay taxes.

    Steelballs, I am making very good money. The issue here is that I am about to go to law school and I need to scale up my operation. With my time spent on school, I need some people to work for me.

    If you are making good money you should invest in a good CPA.

    I am looking to hire the VA to do the SEO while I am busy during the day. I have done my own taxes for a few years now.
