Seated2Serve - Donna Merrill on Home Based Businesses

Update: 2020-01-21


In this episode of Seated2Serve, Host Jeff Bickerstaff talks with Donna Merrill talk about home based businesses and the financial and structural challenges of getting set up right. Today home based businesses are an attractive way to get control of your income. Donna discusses some advantages that are IRS compliant, including ways to incorporate your lifestyle and child's on the job training - into your tax strategy. 

Donna is the founder of Business Untangled, Inc. and teaches people how to think about their structural entity in light of their potential tax burden. Her clients trust her to make complicated systems easy to understand, so you truly have a handle on where you are now and where you want to go. 

What should you expect from a tax professional? Does the difference between a tax preparer, CPA and an enrolled agent (EA) matter to your type of business? Find out the difference, and learn enough about it yourself to understand how to communicate with them to look out for your best interests. Most people have unrealistic expectations with their tax support, so it's important to improve how you communicate your business and lifestyle to take advantage of the best tax strategy for your scenario.
