Woah! I love this episode. We're diving in with Mickey Kerr from WellnessFi a book-keeping and tax specialist advising organization that specializes in working with therapists.
We're going to talk about my $16,000 tax mistake. Back in 2018, I paid over 20k towards my student loans and saved just about 20k for my maternity leave - only to find out, just two months before I went on leave, that I owed over 16k in taxes. Mother Mia! Ay yi yi!
In this episode, I'm going to lay out my finances so that Mickey can help me understand where - exactly - I went wrong and what I should've done differently in order to avoid this huge tax mistake that cost me almost my entire maternity leave financial safety cushion.
I made the mistake of not discovering Wellnessfi until it was too late. Don't be like me! Go to Wellnessfi.com/heytiffany and sign up for your free consultation. If you end up working with them, they'll do 6-months worth of bookkeeping catchup for free!

What I could've done differently in order so that I wouldn't have been caught off guard with a 16k tax surprise;
