Small businesses make up the fastest going segment of federal income tax return filers. The number grows by millions every year as more people look for ways to supplement their incomes and gain financial independence. The problem is most people who set out in business have no idea how to meet the dozens of compliance burdens the tax code heaps on business owners. The GAO once counted more than 200 distinct obligations placed on the shoulders of businesses. Can you name all 200? Can you name even 20? Most people can’t. That’s why so many end up in trouble with the IRS. What starts as a dream to gain financial independence often ends as a nightmare when the IRS imposes tens of thousands in unexpected taxes and penalties.

To address this, the 2019 Taxpayers Defense Conference will focus on business tax liabilities. We will address common small business problems, including:

  • Employment tax responsibilities – the basics your clients must know
  • When and how to properly use independent contractors
  • Common employment tax penalties and how to challenge them
  • What constitutes “reasonable compensation” and how to calculate it
  • Understanding the IRS’s Voluntary Classification Settlement Program

What every tax pro needs to know about the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty
