Providing You Peace of Mind & Significant Time Savings With Professional Preparation of Your Complex Business or Trust Tax Returns by a Federally Licensed Enrolled Agent
Business & Trust Income Tax Preparation Starting at $350
Business and trust tax return preparation starts at $350 due to the increased complexity level and amount of time involved over individual tax returns. We can prepare returns for C corporations, S corporations, partnerships, and trusts.
For most business tax return preparation we would need copies of your income statement and balance sheet for the applicable calendar year or fiscal year (generally only applies to C corporations). You might be asking yourself what is the difference between a calendar and fiscal year? Sometimes they are used in the same context, but for tax reporting purposes a fiscal year generally means a 12 month period that doesn’t end on December 31st. A C corporation can choose to have a different year end. For example, they might have their year end be June 30th so their tax year 2015 would run from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016. Balance sheet reporting is not required if gross receipts on the income statement and assets don’t exceed $250,000. However, we recommend keeping and reporting an accurate balance sheet from the start because it avoids problems if your company reaches the $250,000 mark, which we hope all our business clients reach and become increasingly successful! We love to see our clients’ businesses grow and prosper. If your business books are a mess or have areas you are concerned about, we have no problem going through general ledgers, cleaning up problem and/or audit risk areas, and recording adjusting journal entries if requested.
For trust tax return preparation most trusts are treated similar to individuals for tax reporting purposes just in the trust’s employer identification number (EIN) instead of a social security number (SSN). Therefore, we would need copies of all applicable tax documents. Some of the most common tax documents for a trust are: 1099-INTs (interest income), 1099-DIVs (dividend income), and 1099-Bs (stock and bond sales). It depends on the type of trust, but most trusts have beneficiaries, which we would need the name, address, SSN, beneficiary percentage, and any dollar or percentage distributions for each beneficiary. From there, unless the income stays in the trust, each beneficiary’s percentage share of the trust’s net income is reported on their respective individual tax returns.
