Client Story – Tax Help for Self-Employed Caregiver
Kathy Madonia knows first-hand what it’s like living in a domestic shelter, trying to survive without much income at all. She decided that in order to turn her situation around and become self-sufficient, she’d need more education. Flash forward three years and Kathy is now a college student studying for a degree in social work and is in the Honor Society. To help pay her expenses, she’s taking jobs as a senior caregiver, offering housekeeping, cooking and general help to the elderly.
This past tax season, when Kathy came to Accounting Aid Society (AAS), she got more than just help with her taxes; she learned how to figure out expenses for her self-employment status and got tips on keeping better self-employment business records.
Taxes and financial capability go hand-in-hand at AAS. It’s all part of our mission to help grow an economy that works for everyone by helping individuals reach their own financial potential and create their own financial futures.
“There were so many things I did not know about my new self-employment status that my Accounting Aid Society tax preparer taught me,” she says. “She was patient and took her time answering my questions and giving me tips on how to better keep my records, which will help make tax time simpler next year. She also found all of the business expense write-offs I was eligible for.”
