Tax Season - How to download tax info from

JiffyHub Feb 22, 2023

You probably love many aspects of owning your own apparel business, from creating new designs to helping customers find the perfect gifts for their loved ones. However, some elements aren't as exciting. For instance, the thought of filing your small business's taxes might make you shudder. This annual process  doesn't have to be complicated, though, especially when you use JiffyShirts to order your blank apparel.

Below, we get into the nitty-gritty of filing your taxes for your apparel business. We also discuss how to download your tax info from JiffyShirts so the filing process becomes a breeze.

Do Tax Laws Vary by State?

Yes, tax laws vary by state. The structure of your business might affect how much you must pay. For example, is your business structured as a sole proprietorship, partnership, or limited liability company (LLC)? Some states don't have a corporate income tax, while others have some type of gross receipts tax. For this reason,  it is important to seek the advice of a certified tax consultant or another financial expert.

Also, consider the tax implications of doing business in multiple states. For example, imagine you run a T-shirt printing business with your two sisters. Maybe you live in Colorado, one of your sisters lives in Florida, and the other one lives in Maine. Because the three of you buy T-shirts for use and distribution in different states, you might run into different tax requirements.

Always check with your state revenue department for details on local tax laws. You can also consult with an expert for individualized advice on your unique business situation. If you do, ask them about becoming a tax-exempt business.

What Are the Tax Dates for 2023?

Jan. 23 marks the start of the 2023 tax season. On this date, the Internal Revenue Service started accepting and processing tax returns from businesses. You'll have all of February and March to complete your business' tax return. April 18, 2023, is the cutoff date to submit a tax return for 2022. If you can't finish your taxes on time or stumble across problems, you can request an extension.

Because the tax season runs from the end of January to the middle of April, some business owners might be tempted to postpone completing their returns. However, you can benefit from getting ahead and completing your company's tax return as soon as possible. This way, you won't be rushing to gather and submit all the necessary information before April 18 arrives. It'll sneak up on you sooner than you think, so be sure to take initiative.

Staying Mindful of the Tax Season as a Small Business Owner

Being mindful of the tax season as a small business owner can help your company thrive. You can meet all deadlines without being subject to the Failure to File penalty. This penalty can result in you paying an additional 5% of the unfiled taxes each month they're late. The penalty can climb all the way up to 25% of your unpaid taxes depending on the tardiness of your tax return.

When you know the due dates, you can dedicate fewer resources to filing taxes. You can work with a tax expert to get the job done and not worry about the task further. Do it right the first time, and you can forgo penalties and fees. Your business can continue operations as normal without interruptions. It's also worth noting that failing to file taxes can result in jail time, so it's best to fulfill your civic duty.
