If I filed a sales tax return in January do I have to include that in my income taxes?

I did some cleaning on the side to make some extra money. I made $2400 in 6 months in 2007. I have a sales tax licsense and I filed that already. My question is do I have to bring the sales tax return to my tax preparer and is it going to be reflected in my return?

Sales tax has nothing to do with income tax. If the preparer is calculating your business income and expenses from your records, they'll need to know where the sales tax money went, but that should be obvious from your accounting records - they don't need to see the sales tax return.
