Advanced Tax Strategy for Entrepreneurs

Ever wonder how companies like Apple and Amazon pay next to nothing in taxes? If you're a business owner, and don't already have an advanced tax strategy in place for you and your company - you need to read this.

Does tax season always seem to sneak up on you? Most entrepreneurs agree, the last thing on their mind at the end of the day is preparing to file their taxes. The tax code is complicated and always changing, so it's no surprise that preparing a tax strategy can feel overwhelming. Here are some ways to take your tax strategy to the next level.

Record Keeping

The easiest way to alleviate the stress that taxes bring, is by staying organized! It is important to be diligent on your record keeping by storing all of your tax documents in one place. This includes receipts, invoices and anything related to expenses you have incurred during the year.

Choose an area within close proximity of your day-to-day activities so it's easy to access. In some cases, it may be more convenient to store these records digitally. If so, make sure that the cloud-storage provider you are utilizing is secured with end-to-end encryption and files are backed up on a physical hard drive. Believe me when I say "you can never pay for enough protection when it comes to your tax records."

Keep in mind, convenience is everything here! The process needs to be simple and easy in order to become a routine. This will save you hours of headaches when it comes time to file, or in the event that your files are corrupted.


As 2021 comes to an end, it's becoming more and more relevant. Spending a few minutes a day researching the requirements for deductions that are specific to your industry is a worthy investment that can prove to be beneficial to your bottom line. Plus, if you have organized records, you won't have to spend hours searching for evidence that proves your business qualifies for the deduction.

The 2022 Biden Tax Plan has over 100 pages of tweaks and adjustments targeted at businesses and individuals generating over $400,000 a year. The changes that will be implemented are still a mystery, even to most politicians. President Biden's Build Back Better Plan includes over 1.75 Trillion dollars worth of investments to upgrade our nation's infrastructure. Our country has never spent this much money at once, so it's safe to assume that we will have a dramatic tax increase to justify the expenditure.



The goal here is that by re-evaluating your current deductions, your tax strategy wont fall behind when these "mystery" tax changes are revealed. You can sleep well at night knowing that your business is prepared for these unprecedented hikes.

Define Long Term Goals

While it's never smart to plan time sensitive business operations around government proposals, being proactive with your advanced tax strategy will help your business be best positioned to achieve its long term goals. Consider what these goals are, and discuss them with whom it may concern. As 2022 approaches, businesses that can afford to allocate excess resources to remaining flexible during these times of uncertainty will likely feel less of a shock when the chickens come home to roost.

Reverse engineer your tax strategy to fit the goals of your business, so you can easily transition from one year to the next. This will help alleviate some of that "tax season stress," and ensure that you are constantly making strides towards success.

Don't wait til the last minute to prepare your tax strategy, because chances are you'll miss out on tax breaks that could have saved you thousands of dollars! Take the time to invest in tax preparation so it doesn't become a liability. The more money that your business generates, the more valuable advanced tax strategy becomes.

Getting The Right Help

The tax code is one of the most complicated legal documents in the world. The fact that tax professionals are able to navigate it on a daily basis is nothing short of remarkable! They have spent their entire career studying this "art form" and preparing tax returns for businesses and individuals from all walks of life.

Just remember, tax professionals are not infallible. They have a responsibility to be knowledgeable of the most up-to-date tax laws and regulations. This is their livelihood! You should trust your tax professional with all of the information that you have collected over the past year, but always double check before filing anything.

Tax professionals must be knowledgeable about which specific credits  will have the greatest reduction of liabilities.

Tax preparer integrity has been under scrutiny for the past few years. It just gets increasingly more complicated. This leads many business owners to question whether or not their tax professional is looking out for them, or if they have an ulterior motive.

Remember that tax professionals are there in order to serve you! So if something seems out of line, it's better safe than sorry when it comes time for filing claims and deductions.


If these tasks seem overwhelming at first glance, don't be discouraged! These actions take time but are well worth it in the end when its crunch time before taxes have to be filed next year. By using the tips above and staying organized with your records, tax deductions and long-term goals, you can ensure that your tax strategy is taking full advantage of the opportunities that you are entitled to.
