Obviously this could change for 2006, but as a general guideline, what rate are the commissions taxed when you submit your tax return? I haven't had any PC income in 2005, so I don't think I can deduct my initial start-up (bummer), but as I put some money into my new business, I started to wonder how much I would need to cancel out the tax on my future commissions. That sounded more complicated than I meant it. Let's say that for every $100 I earn, the government wants $30 back. But if I can spend $30 building my business with deductable expenses, I could enhance my business significantly. I just want to know approximately what percentage we're taxed. Anyone know off-hand? Are our expenses deducted at 100%? Thanks all! ps. My first show is TONIGHT!!!!
