Individual and Business Tax Planning and Preparation
Many set themselves up for failure by not doing proper tax planning. Here at Prosperity Financial Services, LLC, we take the time to sit down with all of our clients seeking tax advice, assistance with starting their own business, or wanting help growing their business while maximizing their after-tax income.
We assist with many types of tax problems, including non-filed tax returns, back taxes owed, IRS audit representation, offers in compromise, innocent spouse relief, IRS payment plan, and getting your IRS file and transcripts.
Starting a Business
We can help you determine which business structure is best for you.
This is the simplest type of business as it is a one-person, unincorporated
business, and there is no differentiation between the owner and the
business. All of your earnings, receivables, payables, and debts are your
responsibility. The downside is when your profits are taxed on a
Schedule C at a federal self-employment tax rate of 15.3% (known as
self-employment tax) before you pay a cent of federal income taxes.
Limited Liability Companies or LLCs are set up mostly for legal protection but can be incredibly
useful. The LLC is the most flexible and can choose to be taxed as a sole proprietorship (if there is only one owner), a partnership (if there are multiple owners), a C-Corporation, or an S-Corporation. Regardless of how the LLC is taxed, the entity provides legal protection for the business owner(s) and effectively separates the individual from their business.
Whether it be a limited partnership or a limited liability partnership, a partnership can be challenging and complex. Anytime you have multiple owners of a business, you have a partnership. A partnership's profits are generally also subjected to 15.3% federal self-employment tax on top of income taxes.
S-CORP or C-Corp
An S-Corporation also separates the business from its owner(s). Though S-Corporation owners also hold stock in their companies, taxation is completely different. The S-Corporations owners don't pay personal income taxes on the money drawn from the company, but those monies drawn from the business aren't deductible. The bottom line of an S-Corporation is taxed federally at personal income tax rates and is paid by the individual owner(s). The IRS estimates that there is over twice the number of S-Corporations as C-Corporations in existence.
