Creative business owners are often so focused on the creative aspect of developing, growing and running their businesses, they sometimes forget that they are running a business and find themselves at a loss when it comes to making the “right” business decisions. This has become even more difficult with the economy mired in its worst slowdown since the Great Depression and the flurry of stimulus and tax legislation that has been flying around Washington, DC.
Part of making the “right” business decisions involves making appropriate choices in the myriad of tax matters that a business owner faces every day.

His goals are to help you discover a diamond or two in the coal bin we know as the Internal Revenue Code and to help you minimize your tax burden.
