Business Tax Troubles? There’s Hope
Your Accountant Can Help You Get Caught Up
When you own your own business, the freedom and flexibility of your lifestyle can be wonderful.
But when you become overwhelmed by all the many things you have to take care of to keep the lights on and the doors open (and all business owners have times when they’re overwhelmed), entrepreneurship can be a stressful calling.
In fact, during the worst times of high stress and long hours, you can start to wonder whether you really own a business or whether, just perhaps, the business owns you!
During those times, it’s almost impossible to keep at least something from “falling through the cracks.”
And when the thing that falls through the cracks is your business tax situation. uh oh.
Uncle Sam is not as forgiving as you’d like and certainly doesn’t seem to “get” what it’s like to run a business in our modern economy!
If you run into business tax trouble – and many good, hard-working entrepreneurs sometimes do – that’s when it’s great to have a strong, trust-based relationship with your business’s accounting firm.
Your accountant can help.
Don’t get paralyzed by fear or worry. When tax troubles hit, call your accountant. Right away.
Your Accountant Has Seen This Before
Again, you’re not alone when tax trouble strikes your business.
You have company – more than one business owner sometimes has to choose between paying the taxes and paying the help!
And, speaking of help, you have great help available to you if you have a good relationship with a qualified accountant.
Uncle Sam may not be appreciative of what you’re going through as a business owner… but the best accountants are. After all, some of the most business-savvy accountants are in business for themselves, too. They often know business. because, like you, they’re in business.
It’s unlikely you’ll be the only client on your accountant’s list who’s suffered in the throes of taxation woes.
Not only will your accountant be familiar with the problem he or she will have learned how business owners get into tax trouble how the IRS deals with delinquent businesses and (best of all) how business owners get out of trouble with the tax man.
And your accountant has one big advantage over those one-size-fits-all “tax resolution” companies you see advertising endlessly (and expensively) on television: your accountant knows your business.
You’ll get more than just solid advice when you engage your accountant to help with your firm’s tax problems. You’ll also get something you may have missed lately.
You’ll get some hope.
It’s Bad. But It Could Get Worse. MUCH Worse
When you get into business tax trouble, the one thing you musn’t do is ignore it.
Even though your tax situation is the last thing you want to think about even when you have plenty of “excuses” because you have so many other important things to do… ignoring your company’s tax problem won’t make it go away.
It’ll make it worse.
So call your accountant right away, at the first sign of tax problems. Hand the issue over to a professional. Your accountant can dig into the problem, research your options, and let you know the best way to start getting things turned right-side-up.
Tax troubles don’t have to ruin your business or your sleep. Call your accountant, and get the help you need. And then, get back to work growing a great business enterprise!
