The type of entity that your business is set up under will depend on the Federal and State forms you need to complete to meet your tax requirements. LLCs are taxed in many ways, making it more complex.
If your business was formed under the wrong entity type, you may be paying far more taxes than you need to. We can help you with an analysis of options so you can optimize your specific tax situation.
Federal and State tax return preparation is just the beginning for business tax needs. You may also have franchise tax, sales tax, payroll tax, and other industry-specific taxes and licenses that you need to keep up with. Managing all your tax deadlines can be a big job that distracts you from more important things you have to do to run your business.
We take pride in staying on top of tax deadlines for our clients so you don’t have to stress about them. We can prepare and file the tax returns that are required for your business. We’ll look hard for every deduction possible, discuss with you your options, and perform your tax compliance work accurately and on time.
They may not need to pay taxes, but they do need to file an information return, the Form 990, with the IRS each year. From 990 includes information on the nonprofit organization’s purpose, finances, and programs.
If your nonprofit needs help preparing and filing their form 990, give us a call.
We can help you prepare and file prior year tax returns. If you have challenges with lost records, we can help you through the process. It’s easier than you may think. Sometimes all the worry you’ve built up during the time that you haven’t filed can be bigger in your mind than it is if you just get help now to get it done. Take the first step and call us.
When your return is late, there are two penalties: failure to pay and failure to file. These penalties only get larger the more time you wait. The best option is to get professional help to work out a payment plan with the IRS or the state. With tax professionals like us negotiating for you, it’s very common to get a portion of the amount due forgiven.
We can help you navigate the maze of forms, requirements, deadlines, and constantly changing tax laws so that you can be aware of the possible financial opportunities available to your circumstances.
No matter what kind of income you have – paycheck income from a job that issues a W-2, contract work with 1099s, social security income, rental income, business income, stock sales, interest and dividend income, unemployment compensation, income from partnerships, LLCs, or S-Corps, or any other type of income – we can help you determine how to account for it on your tax return. We can help you take all of the deductions and credits you are eligible for, such as property taxes, medical expenses, charitable contributions, business expenses, retirement plan contributions, the new 20% business deduction for pass-through entities, child tax credits, and so many more.
