One of the most common topic that comes up throughout my experience working with business owners is quarterly taxes. What are they? Do I have to pay them? How much do I pay? What happens if I don’t pay?
Many business owners I talk to have a hard time finding resources to help them answer these questions. Sure, the IRS's website exists, but it's almost like it is written in a made-up language that no one understands.
This is why I set out to create a course to share my knowledge surrounding quarterly taxes.
After Conquer Quarterly Taxes, you will…
✔️ Understand what quarterly taxes are
✔️ Determine whether you need to pay quarterly
✔️ Calculate the amount to pay in
✔️ Reduce the likelihood you'll pay penalties
✔️ Understand how the payments apply to annual filings
Training Videos Videos lasting around 5 minutes or less where I walk you through a specific topic using layman terms so that you can easily digest the information and start utilizing it to handle your next payment.
Spreadsheets I use these within my business for myself and current clients. Includes walkthroughs using a sample company’s information so that you always know how much you need to pay in and have a way of easily calculating it on your own.
Resource Library Resources that break the topics down and help you with decisions so that you don’t end up stuck on a certain topic.
Updates Not only are the numbers/resources updated yearly, but I also do other updates to continuously improve the course and course material
Improvements I thrive off feedback from my learners and use that feedback to fill in any gaps or misunderstanding in the course.

Will I have immediate access? How long will I have access?
As soon as you purchase the course, you will have access to everything. You will also have access for as long as I keep hosting the course so you can come back to this each quarter of each year until you feel like that's unnecessary.
How much time do I need to do this?
You will need about an hour or so to go through the videos. Calculations will take a bit longer depending on how savvy you are with excel. The first time you are ready to calculate the estimated tax payment, it will likely take a bit longer as I'd encourage you to watch the walk-through videos for the spreadsheets as you are filling them out. Once you understand how to use the spreadsheets, you'll get it down to around 20 minutes each quarter; max.
Will I be able to do this myself? Will things get super complicated?
You can absolutely do this yourself. I have broken down the topics into short videos using terms that you already know. If I use a term that you may not know, I will explain it and/or provide a quick description for it in the Quick Reference Guide PDF. I am positive you will be able to handle it and I have extra resources to help make that possible for you. If anything feels overwhelming, send me an email and I can add a resource to help you/others in the course to clarify!
What about yearly changes that occur?
I have used PDFs and spreadsheets to address year specific information. The course will be applicable regardless of the year (unless Congress makes changes, which they haven't in a very long time). The PDFs and spreadsheets will be updated each year as new information is released and prior to the first quarterly tax deadline.
What if I don’t have a business?
Still applicable; though, perhaps less likely. There are still plenty of situations where you'll have to pay in quarterly without a business; however, this course does focus mostly on those who do have a business.
What if I have a sole proprietor or single-member LLC?
Still applicable; this course's focus is to help business owners of all entities understand quarterly taxes.
What if I have a partnership or corporation (C or S)?
Still applicable; this course's focus is to help business owners of all entities understand quarterly taxes. Corporations do have a few unique rules which is why there is a bonus module just for them.
Will this course walk me through my annual filing?
This course is designed to help you with your quarterly taxes so that you don't have to hire a tax professional to explain and/or calculate them for you. I'll always encourage business owners (or individuals with complex returns - investments, multiple states, rental properties, etc) to hire a tax professional for the annual filing; which is separate and different from quarterly taxes.
What is your return policy?
Due to the nature of the product, I generally do not provide refunds; however, if you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please reach out to me at email@example.com and we can come to a solution that will work for both of us.
I have other questions!
No worries - just reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
