When you’ve been in the grind of running your business for a while, there inevitably comes a point where you begin to daydream about selling and moving on.

But the actual sale can often show up right out of the blue.

Don’t get caught off guard by a lack of preparedness.

First, think:
- What would you want to see if you were the prospective buyer?
- How do your assets compare with your liabilities?
- What’s your income stream?

Then, make sure your annual financial statements are on hand and have been combed over by a professional to spot problem areas and get things up to date.

This way you can highlight your best numbers so you're ready for that eventual buyer... even if they come around out of the blue.

This one sounds pretty straightforward, but with the IRS juggling over 200 million different tax accounts, mistakes are unfortunately bound to happen.

You have the right to have mistakes corrected and receive refunds when you are charged too much in tax, penalties, or interest.

The IRS has certain legal deadlines they must adhere to in regards to many tax matters.

These deadlines are not negotiable -- they are the law -- and if the IRS tries to waffle on one of them, you have the right for that to be corrected.

These deadlines can have a significant impact on what you’re billed by the government, so they’re worth paying attention to.

There is a difference between income and wealth.

Tax returns aren't about wealth -- they're about "income", and how that is defined.

Business owners have access to powerful tax advantages that wage earners do not. This is true for smart business owners the world over.

This is why we do what we do ... to increase those advantages on YOUR behalf. We've got you covered on the taxation front.
