Using a Pay Stub Generator for Tax Reasons

I am a handyman, which makes life interesting at times. Some weeks, I may work 70 hours for a dozen different people. Other weeks, I can work just a regular 40 hour work week for just one person. I like the flexibility of my job, and I do enjoy being my own boss, even though I am technically working for other people. The hardest thing about this kind of work is doing my taxes. Not everyone gives me an invoice or pay stub, so I use a fake paystub generator when that happens.

I learned the hard way that having a paper trail of every bit of work is the only way to do my taxes the right way. I used to hand write some invoices myself, but I was worried that I would end up getting audited because nothing looked professional. That is when I decided that I needed to look for something online that looked professional and would help me keep track of everything. I was able to find that with the pay stub generator that I found. The neat thing is that I was able to do it all on my own, so I did not have to involve the people who just wanted to pay me cash.

It was simple to use. I had to put in some information about myself, such as my name, the last four digits of my social security number, my address and even my marital status, which is for tax purposes. Then, I have to put in the information for the person who has hired me to do something. I can put just their name, or I can get detailed with their information as well as the work that I did for them. It just makes life so much easier for me every April when that dreaded tax day comes around.
