Join CPA members Robert A. Green, Darren Neuschwander and Adam Manning for this important Webinar event.

If you operate an S-Corp trading company or S-Corp or C-Corp management company, you need to execute officers’ compensation (payroll) before year-end if you want employee-benefit plan deductions. You also need to establish some retirement plans before year-end including a Solo 401(k) plan or a defined-benefit plan. The elective deferral portion of a Solo 401(k) must be funded and integrated with year-end payroll. (You can fund the profit sharing plan portion in 2016.) If you don’t act before year-end, you will lose these valuable tax benefits.

In this Webinar, learn how to:

  • Maximize and plan employee-benefit plan deductions including retirement plans and health insurance premiums.
  • Determine the appropriate amount of officers’ compensation.
  • Execute payroll in December when you have visibility on annual trading gains, losses and expenses.
  • Add officers’ health insurance premiums to officer W-2 taxable wages.
  • Select a payroll tax service provider. (We recommend Paychex.)

Testimonials

Thanks for your advice and approach in handling our 2010 & 2011 court filing. Our MTM status was initially denied mid-2012. Going through IRS appeals processes lead us nowhere else but another refusal of MTM status. At that point I was not sure how to proceed and if the case was strong enough to take it to the tax court. I kept searching for a law/CPA firm who can [handle this] case. I did not find any lawyers locally with [MTM] experience ... Then I found the Green Trader Tax website, which exhibited a ton of experience and testimonials in this niche area of tax code.

We had exactly eight working days to discuss, share data, decide an approach and file the petition to tax court ... you folks delivered well — on time and most importantly with positive results! Your overall approach and professionalism did not make me feel that I was working with someone remote. Also, Robert, even before we started you stressed that we evaluate our case against your golden rules for MTM first; which was a great litmus test that really boosted my confidence in moving forward ... So here we are, more than two years since the first audit; but with a decision in our favor. My sincere thanks to the Green LLC team. I will be happy to be a reference for your future clients.
