Small Business Owners (More) Vulnerable To Business Ending IRS Audits!

  • New Tax Code Changes Affect You … Do NOT Expose Your Business (And Your Livelihood) To UNNECESSARY Tax Payments, Red Tape& Extra Bureaucratic Paperwork!

  • STOP The Ostrich-Like Denial -- Putting Your Head In The Sand, Thinking No One Will See Your Lack Of Tax Compliance.

  • The Truth Is The IRS Eventually Sees Everything So It’s Mandatory To Have A Tax Expert On Your Side, Working for You!

  • Can You Afford To Leave Yourself Vulnerable … Exposed To Potential Tax Problems And Financial Trouble – Even Causing Your Business To Close??

“TAXES” …A REAL HEADACHE – And Not Much Fun To Deal With By Yourself!

  • New Tax Laws and Regulations … Compliance Issues …Local, State and Federal
  • Taxes … Quarterly Estimated Taxes … Payroll Taxes …Sales Tax …
  • Unemployment Taxes … Personal Property Taxes … Personal and Business
  • Tax Returns …and on and on – WHAT A BUREAUCRATIC MESS!

Don’t let just anyone do your taxes

What sounds better: Trusting your taxes to someone who only works in the industry for three months during tax season? Or having them prepared by a year-round professional with accounting industry experience? 

  • I DO YOUR TAXES FOR YOU
  • PEACE OF MIND WITH 24/7 ACCESS
  • DO EVERYTHING ONLINE

??THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL. AS A BUSINESS OWNER, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO FOLLOW ALL OF THE TAX LAWS AND BE UP-TO-SPEED ON EVERY NEW TAX CODE WHICH APPLIES TO YOUR BUSINESS.

If you get caught NOT paying the proper amount of taxes the IRS says you owe or NOT filing your estimated taxes or related local, state or federal paperwork on time – You Won’t Get Away With Saying “The Dog Ate My Homework” Like You Did Back In Elementary School …That Excuse Won’t Work With The IRS!

NOW is the time for you to pay more attention to your small business’ tax situation which is slowly, but surely getting worse. Of course, no one can see it YET. But just like a stopped up toilet, eventually a “big mess” is gonna overflow, causing damage. The difference is cleaning up this kind of mess in your bathroom only requires a mop and some Lysol spray. Cleaning up a small business tax filing mess with the IRS is MUCH more involved, financially messier and actually EMBARRASSING when your friends and neighbors find out.

Small business tax return preparation and filing instructions is a core service offered to my clients. Whether your company is a C corporation, S Corp, Limited Liability Company, Partnership or Sole Proprietor a properly prepared tax return can be filed to minimize the tax owed. 

Business Tax Preparation Verified Review

" Gary was incredibly helpful and responsive about my tax needs. He consulted me on a rental depreciation issue I had in a timely and professional manner, even spending time on the phone with me to discuss my options before I had made any kind of commitment to him financially. I highly recommend Gary to anyone looking for a helpful and professional tax expert."

New Filing Due Dates

There are some big changes with regard to filing due dates for a variety of returns. Many of these changes have been made to combat tax-filing fraud. The new due dates are effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2015. That means the returns coming due in 2017.

Partnerships

  • Calendar Year: The due date for 1065 returns for the 2016 calendar year will be March 15, 2017 (the previous due date was April 15).
  • Fiscal Year: Due the 15th day of the 3rd month after the close of the year.
  • Extension: 6 months (September 15 for calendar-year partnerships).

S Corporations

  • Calendar Year: 2016 calendar year 1120-S returns will be due March 15, 2017 (unchanged).
  • Fiscal Year: Due the 15th day of the 3rd month after the close of the year.
  • Extension: 6 months (September 15 for calendar-year S Corps).

C Corporations

  • Calendar Year: The due date for Form 1120 returns for the 2016 calendar year will be April 18, 2017 (the previous due date was March 15). Normally, calendar-year returns will be due on April 15, but because of the Emancipation Day holiday that is observed in Washington, D.C., the 2017 due date is the 18th.
  • Fiscal Year: Due the 15th day of the 4th month after the close of the year, a month later than in the past (exception: if fiscal year-end is June 30, the change in due date does not apply until returns for tax years beginning after December 31, 2025).
  • Extension: 6 months. (Exceptions: [1] 5 months for any calendar-year C corporation beginning before January 1, 2026, and [2] 7 months for June 30 year-end C corps through 2025.) Thus, the extended due date for a 2016 Form 1120 for a calendar-year C Corp will be September 15, 2017.

Tax Preparation

When your finances are complicated, it’s important to have your tax return prepared by a skilled professional who can take the time to do things right. I serve clients with similar issues to yours every day, so you’ll know you’re in experienced hands.

Specialties: S Corporations and LLCs

My major specialty is tax preparation and planning for Subchapter S corporations and limited liability companies.

1120S Tax Return Preparation

If you're looking for a CPA firm that specializes in S corporations, and LLCs I'd like you to know I’m available...In fact, I have a special offer that works well for most new and many small Subchapter S corporations and LLCs.

If your firm's revenues and assets are under $250,000, I can probably prepare your 1120S or 1065 tax return, up to two K-1s, and your state's corporation return for $650 if you use QuickBooks Online or you can provide an accurate profit and loss statement as an Excel workbook or in a pdf.

Got a More Complicated Situation?

Just for the record, I can also easily help you if your situation is more complicated or if you use another accounting system, but predictably my prices run a bit more for more complex situations.  (Pricing for S corporation and LLC tax returns that need extra disclosures because assets or revenues exceed $250,000 typically run $850 to $1250, for example, as long as the books are clean, or relatively clean, and the business operates in a single state.)
