HASH(0xa17039c0) out of 5 stars 475 Tax Deductions For Business and Self Employed Individuals Jan. 9 2012
By Donn W. Griffith - Published on
Format: Paperback
Being self employed has many drawbacks and it is hard work to succeed. The government can create up to 600 new tax regulations each year and knowing about these rules can be the difference between surviving and failure. I find it so complicated to keep up that I use a CPA to do my taxes. I have found that I need to organize all the information and keep meticulous records for the CPA. My wife ends up doing that so I can work and produce income. This book has a clear enough organization that it give me and my wife an overview of how the tax system actually works. I have found that I need to look for tax deductions since my wife and CPA have missed some really big ones in the past. The alphabetical listing helps make that easy. The book is easy to understand and I think one tip will save much more than the price of the book. The tips are presented in a clear and easy to understand manner. I need to try to maximize my profits especially in this economy. My largest expense is the government so this is a must read in my opinion.

HASH(0xa177d198) out of 5 stars Becoming ever more an invaluable resource... Jan. 29 2013
By Joshua Jordan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon this book soon after I started my consulting business and I'm glad that I did. Had I not read this book, I would have lost thousands of dollars that are otherwise completely legal to claim - the IRS merely doesn't go shouting the deductions you might be entitled to; you have to research them. This book has helped me as an LLC, but it takes into account the major types of business entities and differentiates which can deduct what (Sole Proprietorship, LLC/LLP, C Corporation, & S Corporation).

If all of this sounds daunting to someone considering entering into business for themselves, this book gives sound advice as to how to protect yourself if an audit does come your way - the book simply does not advocate anything illegal; the tax deductions/credits are there for a reason & you should use them to their fullest extent.

Why I think this book will become ever more important (?). I think it will because this is the new economy that Americans are forced to operate within. If they cannot find full time employment, but can find a reasonable part-time position (or two), they can also mobilize their skill set as a business and offset their tax burden significantly. The IRS only requires that one show intent to make profit for a business to be valid and for appropriate deductions to count. If the American people can sever their liability into a company that operates in the red and have the option for pass through taxation (taxed only once; not two entities) on their income tax, then they can substantially reduce their tax obligations through their small business. This could turn a part-time salary of say $20k net into something more akin to $24-26K net, depending on the deductions one takes.

At minimum, the IRS expects start-ups to operate in the red for the first 3-5 years; this is why the LLC (among other reasons) has become so popular in the past 5-10 years. Even the middle-class that retains respectably high wages can reduce their tax burden, depending on what they are willing to capitalize their LLC with. A new car can be purchased by an LLC and amortized over a period of years; a home office space can be deducted from one's mortgage based on the relative amount of square footage it takes up within one's home; even books and magazines can be deducted in some instances. There is just so much money the government allows as deductions that can and will (as people learn) be used to reduce peoples' taxable incomes. This book explains a lot of those deductions in thorough detail and can help tremendously, particularly for the underemployed who have marketable skills that they can generate at least some profit from (and everybody has something they can do that another cannot).

I bought this book 12 years ago when I started my own consulting business. I am sure that it has saved me many thousands of dollars - as well as much anxiety and worry. I have and continue to recommend it to others who are starting their own service businesses.

Although we knew many of the things in this book already, it laid everything out in a very clear manner and is a great book for anyone just starting out to take advantage of how the system works. The author did have some of the latest changes, which was very helpful to know.

A lot of the listed deductions were ones I already knew, but this is a good reminder -- and has some I didn't know about too. Easy to read and navigate.
