Small Business Tax
Congratulations on owing a small business. Not only are you on the path to financial freedom. But, you are also in the fast lane for a tax audit. Small business tax is one of the most important yet overlooked aspects of running a successful business. Many people neglect tax planning and end up with a large bill from the Internal Revenue Service. You worked hard to get where you are. Why not maximize your profits?
Did you choose your business entity based on the best tax breaks?
If not, you can still fix that. Many small business owners form Limited Liability Companies (LLC). Because, they heard from a friend that it is the right thing to do. A LLC can be a good entity structure. But, it isn’t right for every business. Plus, you could miss out on valuable tax savings. S Corporations provide tax savings that a LLC cannot. For example, S Corporations have no self-employment taxes on shareholder distributions.
Does your business entity still meet your needs?
If not, we can restructure it or form a new entity to hold your most important corporate assets. This will help shield you from liability. Plus, it may help increase your bottom line because you may qualify for more tax breaks.
Are you unsure about hiring a tax attorney?
Truth is, you can’t afford not to. When you finally land that big client do you want to celebrate with a big tax bill? Or, would you rather relax knowing that you were prepared for that very moment? Yes, you will need to spend money upfront. But, would you rather have an unexpected tax bill?
You should consider a tax attorney when:
- You are dealing with a tax issue that you do not understand.
- You owe more than $10,000 to the IRS.
- The IRS is investigating you.
- You disagree with a tax decision by the IRS.
- You are starting a business and want advice on structuring your new company.
Did you know the IRS could knock at your door?
The IRS knows that running a business demands a lot of work. And sometimes, paperwork falls by the wayside. That is why entrepreneurs have a higher tax audit risk. Indeed, some auditors will show up at your business to conduct a field audit. Plus, some of these IRS auditors have family members who run small businesses. Thus, they know all the right questions to ask to get you to pay what they believe is your tax liability. Small business tax is more than paying your taxes on profits at the end of the year. It involves making your estimated payments, paying your independent contractors or employees correctly etc. Don’t get caught in a tax audit that drains yours business resources. Prior tax planning can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
