Go get a consultation with a CPA. You might be in.luck and only pay 100 or 200 for all the taxes and accounting work since you are new. Basically you are starting a new beginning because you know how to do the job yourself. So YOU need to focus on doing that and the accountants can take care of the headache for you. Good luck bud!
