Are you paying more taxes than you have to? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it. That’s money down the drain for millions of Americans.” This invaluable book, updated to reflect changes in tax law, not only lists the individual items that are deductible—from Internet domain name costs to theft losses—but also explains where to list them on your income tax form. “Tax law isn’t easy,” the author explains, “but this book is.” The twelfth edition will be completely updated to include new changes in tax law, a chapter on home-based businesses, and include a special “jump out” highlights in the A-to-Z listings for any deduction that has special rules for home-based businesses.

Most small business owners and self employed individuals are more concerned about the day to day issues of running your business rather than digging through thousands of pages of IRS publications to learn what deductions they might be entitled to on their tax returns. They also do not have the funds to hire a staff of tax attorneys to guide them through the maze known as the Internal Revenue Code. This book will be their staff of tax attorneys to guide them, and to provide them with legitimate deductions that they are entitled to take, but have not been doing so. More importantly, this book will give them methods of record keeping shortcuts designed to take less of their time, yet meet all IRS requirements. There is a lot of talk about a flat tax, and perhaps that would be a good thing. The chances of that happening anytime soon is remote, because politicians love to use (or abuse) the tax code to encourage investment, employment and other pet projects for their states. With the change of administration in the White House a few days away at the completion of this book, there will undoubtedly be many changes to the U.S. Tax Code over the coming months. They buyers of this book will be provided a six (6) month membership to taxsaver.co, (LAUNCHING IN jANUARY, 2017) where the author will be providing updates and changes to the Tax Code for its members. This book is designed to provide the reader with a quick reference not only to different deductions available to them, but also reference to the tax code and other authorities that they can use to provide to their tax preparer at tax time to support their deductions. The book covers everything that a small business owner needs to know, from a brief explanation of the tax system, start up deductions and operating expenses. It covers long term asset deductions and how to handle inventory. It amplifies information on the home office deduction, car and truck use in business, how to combine personal and business travel to make both deductible, as well as getting the most out of their ability to deduct meals and entertainment. It also touches on the many miscellaneous deductions that are available. Finally, it explains how to amend previously filed tax returns when the reader learns how much money they have left on the table in those previous returns. We also discuss strategies to avoid audits and how to handle an audit if one comes up. This book will help the reader to fit their business and circumstances to the available deductions, and start saving thousands of dollars in taxes each year which they could be used by you to grow your business. As long as the Tax Code is allowing all of these deductions and perks, why shouldn't the small business owner take advantage of them? They should keep that money to build their own business. And with our record keeping guidance and shortcuts, the owner can make their tax return virtually AUDIT PROOF.

Are you paying more taxes than you have to? There are more than nineteen million home-based businesses in the United States—56 percent of all businesses—and they generate $102 billion in annual revenue. As far as the IRS is concerned, a home business is no different than any other business. But there is a difference: not only can you deduct the business expenses that every business is entitled to, you can turn personal, nondeductible expenses into tax-deductible business expenses—if you are careful to follow the rules. No tax software or accountant knows the details of your home-based business like you do, and the IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take. This invaluable book not only lists the individual items that are deductible in your home-based business—from utilities to that part of the home where you work—but also explains where to list them on your income tax forms.
