Expert Tax Preparation for Stevenson Ranch Businesses
As a business owner, you wear many hats and oversee countless responsibilities. Naturally, you would likely prefer to prepare your tax return yourself. Doing so can seem like the right way to save money; however, it can often end up costing you more. Business taxes are some of the most complicated to date. Trying to organize, prepare, and file them when your time is already stretched thin can lead to errors, fees, and unwanted attention from the IRS.

5 Signs Your Business Needs a Professional Tax Preparer
It can be challenging to determine whether your business needs professional tax help. The truth is your company can benefit from experienced preparers regardless if you are just starting out or business is booming. Below are five signs it might be time to hire a professional:
Small Business Payroll & Sales Tax Filing
As a business owner, you are required to make payroll and state tax payments. The funds withheld from your employee's paychecks and your business taxes must be prepared and filed. Tax payments collected from each business sale also needs to be filed within the same timeframe. Failing to do so accurately and on time can lead to penalties or a possible audit.
Strategic tax preparation from our team of experienced Stevenson Ranch CPAs can help you avoid errors and potential fees. We take our time to ensure the accuracy of all your payroll and sales tax returns. In doing so, we can help you avoid consequences that could impact your business.
Secretary of State Filings
If you are an aspiring Stevenson Ranch business owner, it is likely that you will need to register and form your legal entity with the Secretary of State Office. This is necessary to file the correct taxes, register as a California employer, and obtain your business license. Filing with the Secretary of State's office also allows you to gain essential permits from the cities and counties you plan to operate your venture.
You may need to obtain additional licenses, permits, or certifications depending on your business type. At John E. Bennett CPA, we work with you to get your venture registered and recognized as a legal entity. Our team will help you select the right structure that best reflects your business goals and allows you to take advantage of your status as an entrepreneur.
