Two Webinars in February Can Save Your Money on Your Taxes!

It’s tax season and family child care providers want to take advantage of the unique tax rules affecting their business.

My two webinars in February will focus on two of these unique rules – the ability to deduct hundreds of household items and the Time-Space Percentage.
