Starting a business, selling your business, merging, or selling off business assets? At Baxter CPA, our goal is to help our clients grow. We work with small to medium sized businesses to navigate the possible pitfalls of starting a business, selling a business, and everything in between.
Baxter CPA’s skilled personnel have decades of accounting and tax preparation experience. We can help you with the day-to-day aspects of tracking business income and expenses, selecting the best tax structure for your business, and filing business returns.
Matt Baxter, CPA, brings a wealth of business management knowledge to our clients as well. He specializes in tax compliance, planning and consulting, and has worked with a diverse range of small and medium size businesses — as well as enterprise corporations like Walmart Stores, Inc.
So if you are starting up a new business, Baxter CPA can help you decide which business structure would be most beneficial for you (C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC or LLP), as well as file the required documents with the IRS and state authorities to create a new legal entity for your business.
We understand taxes when it comes to business, and we know how complicated it can be. When you work with us, you can focus on what you do best — running your business — and know that we will handle the details.
Frequently Asked Tax Questions
When you make gifts to customers, the gifts are deductible up to $25 per recipient per year. For purposes of the $25 limit, you need not include “incidental” costs that don’t substantially add to the gift’s value, such as engraving, gift-wrapping, packaging or shipping. Also excluded from the $25 limit is branded marketing collateral — such as pens or stress balls imprinted with your company’s name and logo — provided they’re widely distributed and cost less than $4.
Holiday parties are fully deductible (and excludable from recipients’ income) provided they’re primarily for the benefit of non-highly-compensated employees and their families. If customers also attend, holiday parties may be partially deductible.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2018 has enhanced two depreciation-related breaks that are popular year-end tax planning tools for businesses. To take advantage of these breaks, you must purchase qualifying assets and place them in service by the end of the tax year.
