FIVE TAX TIPS FOR STARTING A NEW BUSINESS
When starting a new business, you may find the following tax tips helpful:
1. Business Structure: An early choice to make is to decide on the type of structure for the business. The most common types are a sole proprietor, partnership, and corporation. The kind of business chosen will determine which tax forms to file.
2. Business Taxes: There are four general types of business taxes. They are income tax, self-employment tax, employment tax, and excise tax. In most cases, the types of taxes a business pays depend on the type of business structure set up. Taxpayers may need to make estimated tax payments.
3. Employer Identification Number: Generally, companies may need to get an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for federal tax purposes.
4. Accounting Method: An accounting method is a set of rules used to determine when to report income and expenses. Taxpayers must use a consistent method.
