Another Stimulus Rebate Payment Is Coming

Good news. The President signed the COVID-related Tax Relief Act of 2020 on December 27, 2020. The new law includes, in its almost 600 pages, the second round of recovery rebate payments.

Individuals and children (under age 17) are entitled to a $600 rebate if income is below a threshold amount. A family of four can qualify for a $2,400 rebate payment.

Note. Your adult dependent children do not qualify for the $600 rebate.

The payment you receive is based on the income shown on your 2019 tax return. If your 2019 income is too high, you will not qualify for a recovery rebate payment. When adjusted gross income (AGI) exceeds $75,000 single, $112,500 head of household, and $150,000 married filing joint, the payment is reduced by $5 for every $100, which your AGI exceeds the applicable threshold amount. For example, a single taxpayer with AGI over $87,000 does not qualify for the rebate.

If you received a rebate payment during 2020, you will receive this second round, with this one caution. If the earlier rebate was based on your 2018 AGI (your 2019 return wasn't filed yet) and the 2019 AGI is higher, the phaseout rules may mean you will receive a reduced payment or no payment on the second round of rebates.

When will the rebate payment arrive?
If you had direct deposit information on your 2019 return, the rebate payments should start to arrive in mid-January. Paper
checks will be at least a month later. Do not expect a paper check (or a debit card) until near the end of February 2021. The IRS has an "Economic Impact Payment Information Center" page on their website at IRS.Gov. In a few weeks, the center should be open to help you tract this additional rebate payment.


Financial statements are one important key to business success. Many business owners dismiss or do not understand how to utilize the financial statements such as the Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss statement and Cash Flow statement. They give a snapshot of the financial health of a business, insight into its performance, operations, and cash flow. In order to grow a successful business, financial statement are essential since they provide information about a company's revenue, expenses, profitability, and debt. Know your numbers.


Six Tips for Starting Your Own Business
Starting your own business can be an exciting prospect, but there is more to it than simply writing a business plan. Also, if you expect to have employees, there are a variety of federal and state forms and applications that you need to complete to get your business up and running. That's where a tax professional can help. With this in mind, let's take a look at what you need to know before you start a new business.

1. Business Entity
The first decision you need to make is determining which business entity you will use because the type of business structure you choose determines what taxes you need to pay and how to pay them, as well as which income tax return you file. The most common types of business entities are:

Sole proprietorship - An unincorporated business owned by an individual. There's no distinction between the taxpayer and their business.
Partnership - An unincorporated business with ownership shared between two or more people.
Corporation - Also known as a C corporation. It's a separate entity owned by shareholders.
S Corporation - A corporation that elects to pass corporate income, losses, deductions and credits through to the shareholders.
Limited Liability Company - A business structure allowed by state statute.
2. Employer Identification Number (EIN)
Securing an Employer Identification Number (also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number) is the first thing you must do since many other forms require it. The IRS issues EINs to employers, sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, nonprofit associations, trusts, estates, government agencies, certain individuals, and other business entities for tax filing and reporting purposes.

An EIN is used to identify a business. Most businesses need one of these numbers. A business with an EIN needs to keep the business mailing address, location, and responsible party up to date. IRS regulations require EIN holders to report changes in the responsible party within 60 days. They do this by completing Form 8822-B, Change of Address or Responsible Party, and mailing it to the address on the form.

Even if you already have an EIN as a sole proprietor, for example, if you start a new business with a different business entity, you will need to apply for a new EIN.

3. Choosing a Tax Year
A tax year is defined as an annual accounting period for keeping records and reporting income and expenses. A new business owner must choose either calendar year or fiscal year defined as follows:

Calendar year. 12 consecutive months beginning January 1 and ending December 31.
Fiscal year. 12 consecutive months ending on the last day of any month except December.
4. State Withholding, Unemployment, Sales, and other Business Taxes
Once you have your EIN, you need to fill out forms to establish an account with the state for payroll tax withholding, Unemployment Insurance Registration, and sales tax collections (if applicable). Business taxes include income tax, self-employment tax, employment tax, and excise tax. Generally, the type of tax your business pays depends on the type of business structure. Keep in mind that you may also need to make estimated tax payments.

5. Payroll Record Keeping
Payroll reporting and recordkeeping can be very time-consuming and costly. Also, keep in mind that almost all employers are required to transmit federal payroll tax deposits electronically. Personnel files should be kept for each employee and include an employee's employment application as well as the following:

Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. Completed by the employee and used to calculate their federal income tax withholding. This form also includes necessary information such as the employee's address and Social Security number.
Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. This form verifies that an employee is legally permitted to work in the U.S.
6. Employee Healthcare
As an employer with employees, you may have certain healthcare requirements you need to comply with as well. If so, you should know about the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit, which helps small businesses (fewer than 25 employees who work full-time, or a combination of full-time and part-time) pay for health care coverage they offer their employees. The maximum credit is 50 percent of premiums paid for small business employers and 35 percent of premiums paid for small tax-exempt employers, such as charities. It is available to eligible employers for two consecutive taxable years.

If you have any questions or need help setting up a payroll and accounting system for your new business, help is just a phone call away.
