My husband and I have a small drywall business but now have a large job - How do taxes work?

Here's the deal. My husband is a full time carpenter but has been laid off since Sept 2008 but we have a very small drywall business on the side. Since he's been laid off he's been trying to pick up more work. He has been awarded an addition for a house from a General Contractor.
