Small Business Owner

Do you run a small business? Are your hands always full, or perhaps overflowing? Small business owners never run out of things to do, which means that sometimes certain things get overlooked or put on the back burner, including taxes. Unfortunately, you can’t really put taxes on the back burner very long, or you will wind up getting burned yourself.  This balance of this article has tips and ideas to help small business owners with their taxes and hot to reduce them to keep their tax payments owed at the end of the year more in line with the size of their business.

Tips to Reduce Taxes

As a small business owner you want to be sure that you’re doing everything you can to keep your taxes as low as possible. So here are some tips that will help you accomplish that goal. You probably have an individual retirement plan for yourself, but did you know you could set one up for your employees and thus lower your business taxes? By setting up a Savings Incentive Match Plan or a Simplified Employee Pension IRA you can match your employees contributions to the plan. Any amount of money you put in to match is tax deductible.  It may seem like a small thing, but many small things add up to increase your overall profit at the end of the day by lowering your tax payment.

Reduce Payroll Taxes

Another way to save money on business taxes is simply cut out employees as much as you can. In other words, look to hire independent contractors that will be responsible for their own taxes. By doing this you can reduce your payroll taxes.  Payroll taxes can add up quickly, so this is a great solution as independent contractors are also often experts in their field and can also save you money through better job performance.

Tax Preparation Assistance

One other important piece of advice is to find a trusted and experienced tax accounting and wealth management firm to assist you in your tax preparation. Doing this can help save you thousands if not more come tax time. Contact GROCO for more details.
