This is not the first time we’ve decided to impart advice to our lovely readers based on the wisdom of Matt Groening and the Simpsons Team. Sure they entertain, but they have a message.
A message we typically dredge up from the depths of the episode and then spell out for you underneath a video clip.
Sadly for little Otto, there will be no Metallica concert this April 15th. I’m Kent Brockman.
MyCorp is clicking into tax season with the rest of the business world, so we only thought it fair to bring the lovable misfits from Springfield back to see what they have to say on the subject. You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who enjoys doing their taxes, except maybe for Ned Flanders, but hopefully a bit of humor will take the bite out of the process.
Or maybe it will just give you an excuse to procrastinate. That’s almost as good. Continue reading
Small businesses face a unique set of challenges in the current economy.
The Senate voted to repeal the unpopular 1099 tax reporting requirement of the Affordable Health Care Act Tuesday, April 5th. This is the first piece of legislation that officially repeals part of President Obama’s widely-debated health-care reform movement.
Small business owners have expressed their frustration at the provision, which would require them beginning in 2012 to report to the IRS all payments of more than $600 on 1099 forms—work that many small companies just don’t have the time or manpower to do. According to the Washington Post, The bill would have generated an additional $22 billion in tax payments over the next ten years. In addition, the major provisions of the Health Care Act include: Continue reading
If you’re a procrastinator like me, then you’re just starting to prepare for the upcoming tax due date. As it turns out, you’re not alone. Many firms responsible for sending out tax information to the taxpayers don’t even deliver the information until February or March, making it very difficult for those taxpayers to get their tax returns done on time. In fact, over 40% of Americans file after the beginning of April. If you fall into this category, don’t be discouraged and give up on your tax returns! There is still plenty of time to get it all done! Here are some useful tips to getting your tax return filed properly in the next two weeks.
File Online. One of the best moves during this tax season is for you to file online. A great (and surprising!) thing about filing online is that there have not been very many computer problems, and the IRS is only working to make it better by improving the process. Over two-thirds of people filed online last year, and that number will only be increasing. The updated and improved website will help guarantee few problems. However, it is always advisable to not wait to file online until the night before taxes are due as websites and the internet in general can be very unpredictable when too many people are using them.

Financing a start up is daunting for many entrepreneurs. While hunting for cash, many find themselves sucked into flashy gimmicks promising “Free Money!” and “Fast Cash Now!” from websites and hiring consultants.

As difficult as it may seem, small business funding is available. For qualifying businesses, there really are opportunities to land free money from state, county and city governments, as well as private foundations and corporations. Continue reading
In case the first five tax deductions weren’t enough (and let’s face it, you can never have too many tax deductions!), here are five more deductions that can save you a lot of money come tax time.
6. Professional Fees and Classes Deductions. You may have already known that you can deduct certain office equipment, your home office supplies, and health insurance, but did you know that you can also deduct many of the other costs of having a job? Any professional fees that you pay to continue in your career are deductible on your tax return, as well as much of the costs of attending classes, seminars, and training sessions. Subscriptions to professional journals, newspapers, and books are also included as tax deductions. Finally, don’t forget any membership fees you pay to trade organizations, professional groups, or chambers of commerce! All of these things will earn you quite a large deduction on your tax return as long as you keep track of what you spend and save your receipts. Continue reading

The new year is the perfect time to get organized and clean up your business matters…Whether it’s forming a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), protecting your business assets, or maintaining/updating your corporate or LLC documents, now’s the time. It’s a new year and time to start 2008 on the right foot – and MyCorporation.com can help with all of your business and document filing needs. The following advantages of incorporation should be considered when forming a business: (1) Incorporate! The most obvious advantage of incorporation is the limited liability of the company’s shareholders. A company is an entity separate and distinct from its shareholders. The company owns and operates the business and also incurs its liabilities, therefore, the owners of a corporation or LLC can minimize, if not eliminate, the personal risk. Forming a Corporation can provide the protection and tax savings needed to give you peace of mind and make your business even more successful and profitable. (2) Benefits to Incorporating. The following are just some benefits associated with incorporating: (a) Tax Advantages. Incorporation often provides fore greater tax deductions for the business, your employees, and potentially for family members of business owners. Even if you are the only shareholder and employee of your business, benefits such as health insurance, life insurance, travel and entertainment expenses may now be deductible (b) Easier access to capital. Most sole proprietorship and partnership business owners know how difficult it is to raise additional capital for their businesses. Investors tend to shy away from partnership investments because of the risk of subjecting their personal assets to the liabilities that may arise from the business in which they are investing. On the other hand, a corporation can readily raise capital by issuing additional shares of stock. Investors can purchase shares in return for their capital. This allows a business to raise money without incurring debt or interest charges, thus lowering the cost of capital. Continue reading
