Federal and state tax laws are an integral part of business ventures, whether the business is a small sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporate entity. No matter if we like it or not, government is a business partner that can be a burden, as well as a useful tool for business growth. The United States Tax Code is very complicated. It is written as the Internal Revenue Code, which is Title 26 of the United States Code. The Internal Revenue Code comprises some ten-thousand-plus pages and is further defined in the Internal Revenue Regulations, which is written in some ten-million-plus pages. The intent of this book is to provide general guidance to small businesses. The books chapters provide accounting definitions, regulations, and explanations in detail how business is created from its inception and what small businesses must do in order to be successful.
Planning techniques for ongoing business ventures as well as retirement planning vehicles are explained. The book takes the business owner from the first day he or she opens their business through the closure of the business. If the business owner is subjected to an examination by IRS, this book outlines the functions, procedures, rules, and regulations that taxpayers and the IRS must follow.
