Dollars & Cents Tax and Accounting Services has some great tips for you to try when managing the taxes of your business.
Use Software for Payroll Taxes: Doing your taxes by hand can leave a lot of room for very costly mistakes. This is why it is far better to use specialized payroll tax software instead. This software will automatically calculate, file, and deposit your payroll taxes. These kinds of programs are very affordable and can be purchased from many office supply stores or off of the internet. This small investment can save you not only a fortune but also a lot of time and stress.
Stay Organized: It is vital to make sure that you stay organized. Organize all of your paperwork and records so that you can easily access it when you need it. This can save you a lot of time when doing your taxes, too.
Meals: Believe it or not, but you can deduct half of the meals that you purchase as long as they are business related. These meals can include taking clients out to lunch or even ordering food for your employees. However, you can only deduct meals that are not extravagant. Basically, meals that you would buy for yourself if you are on a budget are what you may consider as tax deductible.
Contractors: Using third party contractors means that you do not have to pay benefits or payroll taxes for them. This is great for when you want to save some money, but this is a double-edged sword as contractors are not as invested in your company as a full-time employee would be. So balance out your staff accordingly.
