Starting and owning a new business can be very exhilarating but it can also be very stressful. There are so many important things to keep track of and dozens of tasks that need your attention. One thing that can get lost in the shuffle is your taxes.
First, the taxes you owe and how much you will have to pay will depend greatly on how you structure your business: whether it be a corporation (S or C), a partnership, a sole proprietorship or a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC). If you’re not sure which one is right for you, we’ll be happy to explain the differences and help you set up the best structure for your needs.
As a business owner you could be subject to several different types of taxes, including income taxes, employment taxes, self-employment taxes and excise taxes. You are responsible for any of these taxes that are not automatically deducted. That means you have to pay quarterly tax installments. If you fail to do this you could end up being penalized and pay even more, including interest.
As a business owner you’re still not done. These are just the federal taxes that you need to track. You also need to make sure you are up-to-date on all state and local business taxes as well. Owning a business can certainly be exciting but don’t forget about your taxes along the way. The experts at GROCO can help. Call us at 1-877-CPA_2006 or click here.
