What if I Can't Pay My Taxes by October 15th?

(If both the Failure to File and Failure to Pay penalties apply, the Failure to File penalty drops to 4.5% per month (or part thereof) so the total combined penalty remains at 5%.) Then, the failure to file penalty continues for another 1/2 per month for 4 months (making sure you don’t pay on June 1st or you get charged the penalty for the entire month of June), for a hit of another $800. It’s important to remember that an extension of time to file your return does not mean you have an extension of time to pay your tax bill. The fee for entering into an installment agreement is $105, except that the fee is $52 when the taxpayer pays by way of a direct debit from the taxpayer’s bank account, and, notwithstanding the method of payment, the fee is $43 if the taxpayer is a low-income taxpayer.

Plan Your Travel for a Big Tax Write-Off

In fact, even properly planned holiday travel can generate significant tax deductions while we are visiting family or going to our special/romantic locations around the U.S. or the world. You would be shocked to know how many new clients’ tax returns come across my desk every year with literally zero travel deductions. Keep in mind that travel days include the ‘day’ you get there, the ‘day’ you do business, and the ‘day’ you travel back home! Thus, a properly planned 3 day trip, with a legitimate business purpose, could be coordinated with some personal relaxation or fun and still be a 100% tax write-off.

Don’t forget to deduct the interest on your auto loan, even if you are doing mileage and not actual, the interest is still #deductible. #taxtips #markjkohler #entreprenuer #smallbusiness #mainstreetbusiness

Protecting Our Personal Residence from a Lawsuit or Judgement

Essentially, it’s a pre-established statutory amount (set by each State’s Legislature) to protect some amount of equity or value in a person’s home from a creditor or bankruptcy. I have listed each State’s Homestead Exemption amount in Appendix A of I like to start with this strategy because every state has this law on the books. Essentially, it’s a pre-established statutory amount (set by each State’s Legislature) to protect some amount of equity or value in a person’s home from a creditor or bankruptcy. I have listed the States with the Tenancy by the Entirety law in Appendix B of If your State allows for this special type of law (on top of the Homestead Exemption), a married couple can really provide some significant protection for their home.

Difference between employees and sub-contractors

How you classify a ‘worker’ in your business, whether as an employee or sub-contractor, can have far reaching effects to you AND your business. The IRS consistently warns taxpayers that if they are caught paying ‘employees’ as ‘sub-contractors’, they will pay stiff penalties on top of the taxes and interest owing for payroll withholdings that should have taken place. It’s a 3 part subjective analysis and some facts may indicate that a ‘worker’ is an employee, while other factors indicate that the worker is actually a sub-contractor. A Sub-contractor by contrast is one that typically carries their own tools, supplies, bills for their time and/or services, controls their hours worked and serve multiple customers or clients and aren’t supervised or directed by one employer in particular.
