Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book, Money and Taxes in a Micro Business, is the third book in the Micro Business for Teens series and follows Starting a Micro Business and Running a Micro Business.

I usually recommend that students read this books  if any of the following are true:
1. You've been running your micro business for more than a year
2. You made over $500 in any 3 month period (quarter) (and will probably owe taxes!)
3. You sell a product and need to know now (not at the end of the year) about charing and collecting sales tax.

I tried very hard to make difficult topics such as taxes and financial statements easy to understand. There are lots of examples and images to explain things clearly.

Lots of parents read this book for themselves!

I hope it's helpful.

I had heard of Carol Topp's books before, but thought they were too good to be true. After reading this book, I am ready to go buy more of her books! This book is very straight-forward, encouraging, easy to understand, and I come away with the thought: "I really CAN have a micro-business! I can do this!" Carol Topp deals with the financial logistics of having a business, and she breaks down business terms into very understandable concepts. More than anything, everything she says underscores: "You can do this!" I recommend this book without reservations.

This is a tremendous resource for teens who are on the verge of or who have made money from a micro business and need to understand taxes. Detailed, up to date and interesting, the author explains in great and simple details the things a student would need to know in order to follow the rules and to understand what is required when the time comes to pay their taxes. This book will be invaluable for both parents and students alike; parents are certainly going to learn some new things along with their child. Once having read this book, the worry of when and why and how to deal with taxes will be much easier to deal with, I highly recommend it, along with other books by the same author.

This is the best book I've seen for explaining the ins and outs of teens and taxes. There are jobs teens can have under age 18, plus different kinds of income, that can be tax-free. The author goes into detail about all these different cases. She gives examples of how to figure taxes on various incomes. If your child works in a family business, or gets money from relatives, or works part-time, you will find answers here. If your child wants to start her own business, things can turn into a spaghetti factory very quickly if she is not aware of what taxes she will owe. My son used the author's advice when working for his dad and with his etsy store. It gave us the peace of mind that we needed.
