‘Self-Employed Tax Solutions’ – Book Review & Discount Price For Readers.

I think the best purchase I made in the last couple of months in terms of my self-employed career has been June Walker’s book “Self Employed Tax Solutions“. If you call yourself a 1099 Worker, a Sole Proprietor, a Freelancer, a Subcontractor, a Free Agent or are just Self-employed, you definitely need this book asap, especially with tax time coming up soon. Since all of my salary is now from 1099’s, I need to take good care to make sure I keep very thorough records of my income and my expenses, and this book could not have come at a better time for me. 2008 was the first year when I was not on payroll for someone else, and I needed to learn how to start thinking like a small-business owner. What could I write off on my taxes? What kind of taxes would I owe? How should I keep my records? Well, this book covers all this and much, much more. For example, did you know that as a self-employed individual you have to pay self-employed taxes that pay for Social Security and Medicare which is normally paid for by your employer?

Well, after I read through this book (and I will continue reading through it, that’s for sure) I put a phone call in to June Walker’s office to ask if she would be interested in providing a discount price for readers of My Two Dollars. I knew that if I was getting this much out of this book that there were other people who read this site (and other blogging friends) who could as well. Luckily for you guys, she agreed to give us a discount price on her book. I am not getting anything from her for doing this, nor did I ask for anything – I just think that the book is fantastic and that every self-employed person should have a copy.

Normally, the book retails for $13 but with the password “mytwodollars” you can get a copy for only $10. If you go to her homepage June Walker Online, scroll about 1/2 way down and look in the right sidebar, you will see a link for My Two Dollars readers to click on. Click where it says “Click Here” and you will be taken to a private page where you will enter the password “mytwodollars“. From there, you will be given the special price (including shipping) on the book.

I want to thank June Walker for working with me on this discount, and hope you guys take advantage of her offer. The book really is fantastic and after receiving it, I realized how much I didn’t know about self-employed taxes. So if you work for yourself in any capacity, I highly recommend this book!

    This book is a truly fantastic resource for us 1099ers. I bought a copy just a couple weeks ago – it was totally worth paying full price 🙂

    If you’re looking for a used copy to save even more, realize she just released a new edition. But I hear there weren’t many changes, so don’t worry if you get the old edition.

    Just curious — can you deduct the cost of this book from your taxes?

    I would imagine so, I plan on doing it!

    Thanks for this info. Visited the site but could not access the discount space, text was covering the info somehow. Seems she is also offering a CD for creative artists which would be very helpful also.

    Dora, many other people ordered the book on the site, and I just looked and saw the link. So if you are interested, you might want to try again.

    Hello My Two Dollars Readers,

    I’ve heard from many of you who have purchased my book, Self-employed Tax Solutions. I know it will answer many of your questions on indie taxes and money.

    Anyone having any difficulty ordering the book email me directly at [email protected] and let me know what happened.

    On my website homepage there is a special offer for visual artists. It includes a book and CD. That may have caused some confusion.

    Wishing you all a successful indie experience in these difficult times,
    June Walker
