Common (Yet Critical) Tax Consideration When Operating a Business Through an LLC
Conducting a business-venture in an LLC is like putting together a puzzle.   Do you have all the right pieces... and do they fit together properly? What do you mean I can’t be an employee of my LLC? I do work there, ya know!

Because of the tax status treatment available to LLCs, there are important choices to make that bear careful consideration. Establishing and opening your company properly is important so that you can take advantage of the asset protection, lawsuit protection and tax benefits that are advantageous features of an LLC. Join Gregory P. Bergethon and Christopher S. Johnson as they address these questions and more.

Ten Tips for Tax Controversies

Join Johan as his discusses his top ten tips when dealing with tax disputes.
