- What do you have to file when you have an S Corp and take a salary? Payroll tax forms, possible registration with state, county, and/or city for withholding
- I’m a small business owner who didn’t make any income last year. Do I have to file? Depends on type of small business, but filing is recommended, especially for losses
- How much of my remodel can I claim on my taxes as expenses vs. improvements? Remodel tends to mean improvements; separate improvements from repairs
- Can you claim both the home office deduction and the Section 280A for the same C Corp? No, for technical reasons; reimburse yourself for home office costs and corporate use of house for meetings
- How do you report real estate rental income for properties in a trust? Depends on type of trust and how it’s taxed; may be taxable to grantor
- What determines your state residency when you live in a non-fixed location (RV, boat, etc.)? States typically follow the 183-day primary rule, so depends on where you spent most of your nights, as well as where you’re registered to vote and your driver’s license
- I have a family limited partnership that is going to get a large sum of money. I plan to put it all into a nonprofit. Any taxes owed? A large sum of money is typically a source of adjusted gross income (AGI), which is only 60% deductible
