Welcome, Etsy Sellers! I am also an Etsy Seller and have been selling on Etsy since 2012.
A little background. I have a B.S. in Accounting and passed the CPA exam in 2004, so when I opened my Etsy shop, I felt very comfortable with the accounting and tax side of things. For many new Etsy Seller’s this is not the case. My goal with this website is to help take the mystery and misery out of your Etsy shop accounting and taxes. While I have articles and information for all types of small businesses and side hustles on my website, I definitely have a soft spot for Etsy Seller’s like me!
First things first. Grab your free copy of The Etsy Seller’s Simple Guide to Taxes, my comprehensive yet easy to read book, on all things Etsy Seller tax related! Just grab your copy and hang onto it for reference for when the next tax question comes your way.
