Report #51 Your Business MUST Show a PROFIT pdf Add to Cart
Report #51 is the First in a 3-part Series. Your Business MUST Make a PROFIT– It’s Critical for Audit Protection! Surely you know that
claiming home-Business tax deductions does not require that your business report a profit IF you can PROVE that you have an honest
intent to produce a profit. But intentions are subjective, so it is difficult, if not impossible, to prove an intention. If you are running a
small business that has not reported a profit in three or more years, this Report is a must-read. NOT KNOWING the information in this
report, could cost you a small fortune!
Report #52 What if Your Business does NOT show a Profit? pdf Add to Cart
Report #52 is Second in a 3-part Series. Many small and home-based businesses report a Business Loss on their tax returns in some years,
especially as they are launching a new business. Tax law states that qualifying for special small-business deductions requires the business
to either (a) make and report a reasonable profit, OR (b) be able to prove they are intending to produce a profit. This Report answers the
following question: What if you have not made a profit in the past three or more years, and you are unable to convince an auditor that you
“intend” to produce a profit?

Report #36 Bullet-Proof Returns with Disclosure Statements pdf Add to Cart
Every taxpayer has a legal requirement to document (i.e., prove) that he or she qualified for every tax deduction claimed. But some deductions
are not so easy to “prove.” For example, “exclusive use” is a requirement for claiming a home-office deduction. But how can anyone prove conclusively that a home-office area was never used for anything else besides business? Read the answer lies in two words – Disclosure
Report #38 Using Sec 530 Safe Harbor to Avoid Payroll Taxes pdf Add to Cart
One favorite trick of the IRS is to look at your “staff” – which you have probably classified as “Independent Contractors” rather than as
Employees - and then they’ll try to unilaterally re-classify them as “Employees.” If they do that to you, and if they get by with it, you
could end up owing tens of thousands of dollars in retroactive payroll taxes, plus interest, plus penalties. This very common action by
the IRS has put lots of businesses OUT of BUSINESS. Here is how you can Teflon™-coat Yourself and your Business…If you have “paid help”
that you have classified as Independent Contractors, “SBO Executive Summary #38 is a MUST READ.

Report #23 Business Travel in ‘North American Area’ pdf Add to Cart
The rules for deducting Business Travel within the 50 United States are described detail in Chapter 9 of “Home Business Tax Savings, Made
Easy!” HOWEVER, when you venture OUTSIDE the U.S. (even to locations close to the U.S.), the rules are a bit different. This is a must-read

Report #35 Deducting International Travel pdf Add to Cart
When you travel on business outside of the North American area, the tax-deduction rules area bit different than those for domestic travel.
The differences are in deducting the costs of the TRANSPORTATION for getting to and from the overseas location. There are TWO SETS
of RULES for writing-off transportation for business trips outside of North America. One set is for attending a business Meeting, Seminar,
Conference or Convention abroad. (And there are also 3 “sub-categories” under that one.) The other set of rules is for trips abroad that
are for Business purposes, but NOT primarily for attending a seminar or conference. (And there are three sub-categories under that one also.)
The rules are precise, but when you “break the code,” it’s easy to safely get the maximum amount of deductions for international transportation.
This Report #35 “breaks the code.”
Report #37 Set-up & Attend a 2-Person Seminar - anywhere pdf Add to Cart
We all know that business seminars are generally tax deductible, but here’s a little something I’ll bet you did not know…You can set up your
own meeting with just one other person, and your two-person meeting can qualify as a tax-deductible business seminar. Who says so, and
so what? That’s according to a precedent-setting Tax Court Ruling in Jones v. Commissioner (ref. Carl H. Jones v. Commissioner, 131 T.C. No. 3).
This opens up a whole range of “business trip” possibilities in locations of your choosing.
