Tax Planning for a Business Owner in Sacramento
Donna Sauter lives and works in the Sacramento and Modesto, CA areas and likes to deal what many would consider the most boring subject of all; taxes and financial statements. As far as Donna is concerned, her job is not about taxes and financial statements but using the data and wealth of information that flows from putting accurate financial statements together and the benefit and knowledge it brings the business owner.
Each Tuesday at 10.00am PST on radio station 105.5FM I conduct a radio show called Money 2.0.
The purpose of the show includes interviewing business experts in a range of topics including selling a business, selling a medical practice, valuing a business, buying a business and buying a franchise plus all the responsibilities and challenges that come with owning and operating a business or as I like to say, where Wall Street meets Main Street.
You are welcome to listen to my interview with Donna Sauter when she was a guest on my show on September, 24, 2013.
Tax planning for a business owner
Some of my questions for Donna when we talked about taxes and tax issues for business owners in the Sacramento area includes the following:
- When should a business owner start their tax planning?
- What would you advise a business owner who is having a really bad year and whether it make sense to do any tax planning?
- If you own a business and are having a really good year, what tax planning should you consider?
- How do you help your clients with their tax planning?
- What’s the best way a client can prepare so when they come to you, you can focus and help them?
There were many more topics covered during my interview with Donna; especially about how these mundane tax compliance requirements help a business owner.
