I am so confused as to what I need for next years tax's. I have my own room in a local salon, I book my own appointments, my customers pay me (not the salon). I don't get paid from the salon at all, just what I make off of my appointments. Saying all that, what exactly do I need to do in order to "show" income? Do I need a LLC, tax id #, separate checking account, business name (or can I just use my name) do I need to see an attorney or a accountant??? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
