Q. As a new RVer just starting out in business, what type of records do I need to keep? FG, South Dakota
A. Although not a tax question, this pertains to so many people, I decided to publish your question. Without proper records, it would be impossible to prepare a tax return. For everyone starting out in business, and even if you've been in business a few years, reviewing IRS Pub 583 is an excellent start. When paging through this publication, keep hitting the next button on the bottom right of each page, as this pub is several pages long.
If you are any type of entity other than a sole proprietor, you need to use a double-entry bookkeeping system. There are several good software products on the market.
