Who Can Use These Summertime Tax Tips

“Every small business and every individual taxpayer has unique circumstances that can only be resolved with the help of a qualified tax advisor. The trouble is that many of the people facing summertime tax deadlines aren’t even aware that they could be running into tax trouble, so they don’t know what to ask,” explains Gary Milkwick, CPA, vice president at 1-800Accountant.

“The white paper gives independent contractors and small business owners the basics of what they should be doing during the months after April 15 in order to comply with the rules and minimize their tax liabilities. There’s even a section on the key steps to take this summer to prepare for the passage of the Marketplace Fairness Act – better known as the Internet sales tax law. Taking advantage of these summertime tax tips can make a big difference, so it’s worth the time to read the document and see what steps you can take to minimize what you’ll have to pay in taxes next year.”
