Managing Your Single Largest Expense
As a practice owner you are granted special status that creates unique tax advantages, so long as you are careful to avoid the pitfalls that go along with these opportunities. Our integrated tax planning will guide you through this process so that you are comfortable with your tax plan and satisfied with your tax results.
We utilize several proven tax strategies to look forward and identify how we can use provisions of the tax code to achieve the most favorable tax treatment for you and your practice for years to come.
Our strategies focus on three key areas:
1. Reducing Employment Taxes
Employment taxes (and specifically self employment taxes) are one of the least understood and managed taxes we have. Separate from income taxes, these taxes take a huge percentage of your earnings before any personal income tax deductions. Fortunately, you have a special status that enables us to manage the way these taxes are collected. While employment taxes can’t be eliminated, our tax professionals can formulate a clear plan to minimize the effects of this hidden tax.
2. Identifying as Many Tax Deductions as Possible
The most direct means of reducing the impact income taxes has on the amount of your earnings you turn over to the internal revenue service is identifying every legitimate income tax deduction that is available for your use. These tax deductions come from two sources, business deductions and personal deductions.
3. Sheltering as Much Income as Possible
Utilizing the special provisions of the tax code, we can shelter some income from taxation. One method to do this is through establishment and monitoring of specially designed retirement plans for your benefit. Our strategies are to achieve long term solutions to manage and minimize your taxes.
Tax Planning Services for Dentists:
Income tax planning and your practice monthly accounting are closely related. This is due to the fact that when you own a practice, your business profit is reported on your personal tax return (via Form K-1 or Schedule C) and taxed at your personal marginal tax rate. In order to ensure that we are able to provide close attention to your tax situation, our firm limits our tax work to only those clients for whom we also provide monthly accounting or payroll services.
