Self-Employed Program

American Dream CPA has prepared thousands of tax returns for self-employed professionals. Through this experience, we have developed our Self-Employed Professional Program. Our goal is to make our clients' lives less painful when it comes to taxes.

In this program we handle everything for you — tax planning, preparation, bookkeeping, payroll, and guiding our clients on how to take full advantage of the tax system. This simplifies communication and the efficiency allows us to charge reasonable costs. The returns are engineered to be accepted without audit and to comply with the tax laws and regulations, taking advantage of both the corporate and individual tax systems. 

Corporations pay less tax than individuals because they have a separate corporate tax system. This lets businesses take all sorts of “ordinary and necessary” tax deductions including travel, private jets, boats, furnishings, limousines, and research into other businesses. The result is that corporations pay less than 2% of their total income in federal income taxes. This is why you should file your business on a separate S Corporation tax return. 

However, individual who file their business using a Schedule C as part of their Personal Form 1040 tax returns have many restrictions on business deductions. The result is that individuals pay over 10% of their total income in federal income taxes.

This advice is based on decades of experience over decades of striving for excellence and caring about our clients' quality of life. There is more involved in successful tax planning and preparation than a good tax bottom line.

1. You need a long-term tax strategy to achieve the lowest practical tax rate over the long term in a changing environment.

2. The tax strategy must be tailored to your priorities, lifestyle, income, commitments and goals.

    a.   You must be comfortable with the strategy and tactics used.
    b.   Your returns must comply with the laws and governmental regulations.
    c.   Your tax returns should have an extremely low chance of being audited.

The lowest possible tax means the tax is affordable and the returns will meet your bank's or insurance company's expectations if possible. We can promise this because we will have discussed your requirements and what the taxes will be to achieve the lowest possible taxes.
