April 15 is coming up fast. Need a small business tax calendar that keeps track of all the deadlines and filing information for you? The IRS has a handy tool just for that: The Tax Calendar.
The Tax Calendar contains every single entry and event that occurs in the tax season–every single one.
If you follow this calendar, you won’t miss a deadline. You’ll finish your taxes on time. You’ll probably feel better about life in general.
This is what it looks like:
Not too pretty, but full of the right info and easy to understand. There are 4 sections on the Tax Calendar: Navigation controls, the calendar, event types, and events list. Under the word Tools, you can find the RSS feed for the Tax Calendar and subscribe to receive alerts for every new event you’re interested in.
You can navigate throughout the calendar using the navigation controls (previous year, next year, etc.).
All deadlines and events for the tax season are listed on the calendar. Hover over a calendar date to see a detailed description of the event or deadline listed.
You can choose which types of events you want to see on the calendar by checking or unchecking boxes under Event Types.
Detailed descriptions of each tax season event are listed in the event list. They are presented two ways:
- On the calendar itself (hover over date to get descriptions)
- On the list to the right of the calendar (descriptions included)
With April 15 almost upon us, it’s important to stay on track and make sure you are ready to meet all deadlines and gather the right information. As a small business owner, you have so many things to keep track of and worry about–you don’t want to add an audit to your list!
