I was thirteen years old when my Dad sat me down at the kitchen table and had me do my taxes for the first time. It’s not like I was rolling in cash—my only 1996 income was from a day at Streetsville’s Bread & Honey Festival, sweltering inside a Sam the Bee costume. But I studied the tax booklet inside and out—my Dad wanted me to approach it just like I would for a full-time job.
More than twenty years later, I’ve switched to digital systems that automate and optimise the things once done with multiple booklets and an accounting calculator, but that doesn’t necessarily make things simpler. In fact, now that I’ve built an entire second career from creating content for Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad, doing my taxes only grew more complicated, now requiring the expertise of additional people to do it all correctly.
But new times (and tax laws) call for new solutions, and that’s precisely what TurboTax offers with TurboTax Self-Employed! It makes tax filing simpler and more straightforward than you’ve ever seen before!
