One of the most common topic that comes up throughout my experience working with business owners is quarterly taxes. What are they? Do I have to pay them? How much do I pay? What happens if I don’t pay?
Many business owners I talk to have a hard time finding resources to help them answer these questions. Sure, the IRS's website exists, but it's almost like it is written in a made-up language that no one understands.
This is why I set out to create a course to share my knowledge surrounding quarterly taxes.

Payment plan available!
Videos lasting around 5 minutes or less where I walk you through a specific topic using layman terms so that you can easily digest the information and start utilizing it to handle your next payment.
I use these within my business for myself and current clients. Includes walkthroughs using a sample company’s information so that you always know how much you need to pay in and have a way of easily calculating it on your own.
Resources that break the topics down and help you with decisions so that you don’t end up stuck on a certain topic. Also, a quarterly email to remind you of the tax due dates so you don't forget!
As long as I am hosting this course, you will have access to it through all updates, improvements, future events, and more!
Not only are the numbers/resources updated yearly, but I also do other updates to continuously improve the course and course materials. This includes making it more accessible for all.
I worked with an instructional designer to create this course; however, we aren't perfect. Thus, I thrive off feedback from my learners and use that feedback to fill in any gaps or misunderstanding in the course.

Every new business owner should have "Conquered Quarterly Taxes". I am preparing to make my first quarterly tax payment with full confidence that I know how to estimate and pay it. Harley Raptor is able to reach inside the minds of uncertain small business owners like myself. She tells AND shows us WHAT we need to know in ways that anyone can understand. That is a rare skill! Especially for an accountant with a Master's degree.
This course even explained WHERE to pay on the IRS website and gave me the link to my state's website! How thorough is that! The course includes pre-prepared Excel spreadsheets. After Harley Raptor explained how the spreadsheet worked, all I had to do was type in my specific information. My thoughts went from "OH NO! QUARTERLY TAXES!" to "EASY-PEASY!"
The video lessons of this course are all 5 minutes or less. That means we never get overloaded with too much information at once. I would have spent many hours wading through the IRS website trying to find the TAX FORM to calculate my Estimated Quarterly Tax Payment. That information alone and the hours it saved me helped this course pay for itself!

Harley’s course was just what I needed to wrap my head around quarterly taxes and feel more confident about doing them myself! She breaks everything down in a really easy to understand way, and I really appreciated her walking through every single step from start to finish so that I had the full picture as well as all of the details for each component.
I feel a million times better about doing this on a regular basis. So something that seemed really daunting to me previously, now feels like no problem with this step-by-step guidance. And I love how approachable and easygoing Harley is with teaching this whole process! While others may make it overly complicated and use tons of jargon, she makes you feel completely at ease by making the topic much more concise, giving you her insights at every turn, and going at a pace that allows you to feel comfortable rather than overwhelmed.
Thank you so much for putting this together, Harley! I really feel so much more prepared to create a solid financial foundation for my business.

This spreadsheet is perfect! This was a perfect opportunity for me to have a tool that guides me through the process so I could be confident mailing in my quarterly payment to the IRS instead of terrified! Also, Harley’s tutorial video that came with it was super informative and helpful to walk me through the steps!
NOTE: This testimonial was for an older version of the spreadsheet that I used to sell separately. I have since updated and improved that spreadsheet as well as included more in the current course.
Will I have immediate access? How long will I have access?
As soon as you purchase the course, you will have access to everything. You will also have access for as long as I keep hosting the course so you can come back to this each quarter of each year until you feel like that's unnecessary.
How much time do I need to do this?
You will need about an hour or so to go through the videos. Calculations will take a bit longer depending on how savvy you are with excel. The first time you are ready to calculate the estimated tax payment, it will likely take a bit longer as I'd encourage you to watch the walk-through videos for the spreadsheets as you are filling them out. Once you understand how to use the spreadsheets, you'll get it down to around 20 minutes each quarter; max.
Will I be able to do this myself? Will things get super complicated?
You can absolutely do this yourself. I have broken down the topics into short videos using terms that you already know. If I use a term that you may not know, I will explain it and/or provide a quick description for it in the Quick Reference Guide PDF. I am positive you will be able to handle it and I have extra resources to help make that possible for you. If anything feels overwhelming, send me an email and I can add a resource to help you/others in the course to clarify!
What about yearly changes that occur?
I have used PDFs and spreadsheets to address year specific information. The course will be applicable regardless of the year (unless Congress makes changes to estimated payments, which they haven't in a very long time). The PDFs and spreadsheets will be updated each year as new information is released and uploaded prior to the first quarterly tax deadline.
What have you done to increase accessibility?
All videos include closed captions and I provide a PDF transcript for each video as well. The PDF transcript uses the Atkinson Hyperlegible Font by the Braille Institute. I am working on creating PDF walkthroughs of the spreadsheets to help as well. Accessibility means more to me than physical impairments, which is why my payment plan is equal to the paid in full plan and give links to other options at the bottom of this sales page.
What if I don’t have a business?
Still applicable; though, perhaps less likely. There are still plenty of situations where you'll have to pay in quarterly without a business; however, this course does focus mostly on those who do have a business.
What if I have a sole proprietor or single-member LLC?
Still applicable; this course's focus is to help business owners of all entities understand quarterly taxes.
What if I have a partnership or corporation (C or S)?
Still applicable; this course's focus is to help business owners of all entities understand quarterly taxes. Corporations do have a few unique rules which is why there is a bonus module just for them.
Will this course walk me through my annual filing?
This course is designed to help you with your quarterly taxes so that you don't have to hire a tax professional to explain and/or calculate them for you. I'll always encourage business owners (or individuals with complex returns - investments, multiple states, rental properties, etc) to hire a tax professional for the annual filing; which is separate and different from quarterly taxes.
What is your return policy?
Due to the nature of the product, I generally do not provide refunds; however, if you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please reach out to me at email@example.com and we can come to a solution that will work for both of us.
I have other questions!
No worries - just reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
