Corporate Tax Planning Chicago Illinois
When doing tax planning for businesses, one of the issues that we look at is the type of entity.
- Are you a sole proprietorship, partnership, or a corporation?
- If a corporation,
then what type?
Answers to these questions will have a profound effect on many income or payroll taxable situations.
- Are we profitable, or are we showing a loss?
Depending on the type of entity and basis, we may be able to deduct the loss of a business off of a personal tax return.
- How are we handling payroll for the owners of the business?
Is it possible for us to take out dividends, distributions, or draws while still maintaining a reasonable salary for the owners of the business?
Answers to these questions may have a profound effect on reducing the payroll tax expenses of the entity.
