Helpful Tips When Searching for a Tax Preparer

The tax filing season is upon us, and many will be looking for someone to help them file a tax return. The IRS announced that the 2019 tax filing season will begin on Jan. 27. The agency expects to receive more than 150 million individual income tax returns. 

If you are searching, choose their tax return preparer wisely. This is because it is ultimately you, the taxpayer, who is responsible for all the information on your income tax return. It is important to remember this is true no matter who prepares the return.

Should I Sell My Business Now, Before It’s Too Late? Aka “Get out now! It may already be too late”

Businesses are being bought and sold every day. Data from the past three years show a record number of businesses sold. For the most part, owners received fair prices, and sellers were happy with the deals they made. Will that trend continue?  Is now a good time for you to join the sellers and put your business on the market? Is there a definitive yes or no answer?

     Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 

– Mark Twain

An almost infinite number of factors play into whether a business should be sold, as well as when to sell. Some are totally beyond your control. Careful analysis can eliminate others from consideration. Trusted advice will help swing some factors into the yes or no column. The biggest determinant, and one that requires more thought than you might realize, is you.

How to Increase the Value of Your Business Before You Sell

When you first dove into entrepreneurship, your initial thought may not have been to build a sellable business. Most people are driven by the "freedom" associated with self-employment, and it takes a staggering commitment to build something that is sustainable.

But, whether you're starting a new business today or have an existing one, Michael Gerber, author of The E Myth, suggests that the only reason to build a business is to sell it. This makes sense if you take emotion out of the equation, but we're human beings.

Selling something you've become attached to can be challenging and looking at it objectively might be a tall order. But every business owner would love to get top dollar when they walk away. This generally doesn't happen by chance.
