Do you have an accountant? If you do, then he/she is the one to answer your
questions. Turbo Tax is a great program, but an accountant will assist you
in answering the questions Turbo Tax asks. We used an accountant to set up
our accounts after retiring from technical writing full-time and entering
the wonderful world of Social Security and professional photography. Once
they were set up, it was off to the horse races. We use Quicken for Home and
Business and found it easy to simply link the two programs. When we tried it
the first time, without ensuring all our accounts were correct and
categorized properly, it was a disaster.

Get TurboTax Home & Business. It will help you figure out how much to pay in
estimated taxes to avoid penalties. There are lots of potential deductions
for 1099 income that are not available for W-2 income.

The forms are 1040-ES and 540-ES. The filing schedule is peculiar:
April, June, September, January.

but recently have had do a 1099 contract job. I have never done this and I
am at a loss on how to go about federal and calif state taxes. If anyone can
give me some information or refer me to information on what to do I would
appreciate it. I have been looking online and it is confusing to me at this
point in time.
