ENTREPRENEURS, CONSULTANTS AND SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, THIS OUT PROFESSIONALS WORKSHOP CAN HELP YOU SELECT TAX-PLANNING STRATEGIES THAT WORK BEST FOR YOU.
On Thursday, October 23, Out Professionals invites you to cut through the welter of tax-planning options that confront the entrepreneur, the consultant and the small business owner. Presenting for OP will be Nancy Adams, CPA, above left, and financial services professional Mary Blanchett, above right.
Effective tax strategies help provide the groundwork for any successful business. This information-packed seminar gives you the basics — and then some!
To begin with, which is the best entity for your business — a corporation or an LLC? Learn the qualitative and quantitative differences between them.
As an employer, what are your responsibilities under federal and New York State tax laws? Which employee taxes are your obligation?
How do independent contractors differ from employees, and what are the the consequences of misclassifying them?
Which retirement plans mandate employee inclusion and which do not, and what are the contribution limits of each option?
How many basic deductions — such as those for home office, auto, travel, entertainment — will apply?
Which accounting software will best serve you, and how much record-keeping do you need?
Is “audit-proofing” your tax returns a workable goal?
