Publisher's Summary

Taxes for Small Businesses Finally Simplified - Learn the Important Things Without the Fluff

Did you know the typical small business owner works three to four months just to earn enough profit to pay taxes? Whether you've been in business for several decades or are breaking ground as a new entrepreneur, taxes are a significant expenditure. They must be accounted for and incorporated into your business plan from the very beginning. Failing to account for taxes when planning, budgeting, and assessing revenue goals for a business is like failing to account for the expense of your rent or mortgage - it's an absurdly hefty expenditure that must be understood, tracked, and, whenever possible, paid for on time.

With Taxes for Small Businesses QuickStart Guide, you will come to understand taxes from the inside out. This book has been specifically designed with ease of learning in mind to ensure you don't get stuck or lost or lose hope when trying to understand small business taxes. Never again will you need to waste your time searching the Internet or watching videos. Become a small business tax expert who fully grasps the ins and outs of taxes for all types of small business. This knowledge will help you not only in your current business creation but in all other future business endeavors.

What you'll learn...

  • How to handle the IRS
  • How to accurately keep records
  • How and when to handle payroll taxes
  • The most important (and most frequently missed) deductions
  • The biggest tax mistakes that businesses make
  • Much, much more!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    If it has letters strung into words that form a story which draws me in, I won't be able to resist it. Is there a reader's anonymous?

    Story
    "Intro to ease you into taxes"

    This is a quick start guide on taxes for small businesses. There are specific examples and advice that help clarify some of the deductions that are available to small businesses. I don’t think it is substantial enough to do your own taxes off of, but that is why it is a quickstart guide. It presents a nice gentle lead into the deductions and rules. Always consult a tax professional or get them to do your taxes every few years after doing your own; or when vastly different rules are introduced. The value in the book is that it should allow you to have a less confusing conversation with a tax professional as you will at least have had a primer and should be able to understand the gist of the conversation. It also reminds people that if you do your own taxes you need to keep upto date on relevant tax rules as they are always changing. Additionally, I would recommend this to someone starting out with their own business, as it is better to know ahead of time what kind of records and receipts to keep and organize them accordingly, rather than waiting until tax time to tackle a mountain of receipts.

    The narration was good. Everything was clear and well paced.

    I received this book free in exchange for my honest review!

    "Useful but not comprehensive"

    I was compensated to provide this review: There was a lot of good information. Definitely something to read before doing your taxes. But by no measure a comprehensive guide on do it yourself.

    "Very informative!"

    Very informative. If you are new to taxes for your small business, it is a good start. If you are a veteran, in the subject, is a good refresher.

    "Brief."

    This was a basic overview. From the rating and reviews, I was hoping for more in depth information.
    QuickStart guide is just that; a quick guide to the basics.

    Story
    "Great QuickStart Guide"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is a Quckstart guide but it is full of micro strategies and Tax info. Having just started a LLC myself this year I have been looking for a quick but comprehensive idea of what forms and taxes i need to prepare for.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the book goes through the various taxes and forms. Again, micro strategies they suggest to help in perpetration of taxes, save for taxes and keep record of tax use. This audio book also mentions online sales and strategies dealing with online sales. I have a sole LLC and there is a lot of information related to that, for the price point this book is chop full of info and someone reads it to you. There is an additional free companion PDF that goes along with this Audible book.


    What about Kevin Kollins’s performance did you like?

    Easy listen, sit back and let it go... and let him read you the tax forms you need. Clear and comfortable voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    “Full Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review”

    I thought this book was informative. There was a lot I didn't know about taxes that I now know that helped me get organized. It's not a step by step guide but rather a lot of rules and regulations as well as tips on how to stay organized and record deductions

    Story
    "Great Practical & Need-To-Know Small Biz Advice!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Taxes for Small Businesses QuickStart Guide - Understanding Taxes for Your Sole Proprietorship, Startup, & LLC to be better than the print version?

    I believe audio is a great way of learning, I have not read the print version, but I very much enjoyed being able to learn about taxes (a not so fun subject) while simply listening through my headphones!


    What other book might you compare Taxes for Small Businesses QuickStart Guide - Understanding Taxes for Your Sole Proprietorship, Startup, & LLC to and why?

    Small Business Taxes for Dummies might be a good comparison? This happens to be the first tax-related book I have read, so that says a lot about how easy ClydeBank has made this tax-learning process for any small business owner!


    What does Kevin Kollins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The tonality of the reader keeps you engaged and focused on the important parts of what you need to take away from the audiobook.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When learning about the IRS and how it functions regarding small business it was a complete eye-opener!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, easy to listen to and understand, would definitely recommend!
