Are You Paying Business Taxes?

Just like individuals, businesses must pay taxes based on the company’s profits, capital gains, investments, property owned, and labor-related taxes. If you are a business owner, you should meet with a Nashville business tax attorney to ensure you are correctly assessing and paying the taxes you are required to pay.

Business Type Determines Which Taxes Must Be Paid

The business taxes you may be obligated to pay are determined by the type of business you operate. Here are the most common kinds of business taxes: income tax, employment tax, excise tax, and self-employment tax. Requirements vary depending on whether your business is small or large, experienced losses, is incorporate or a sole proprietorship or an S corp. Tax law is complicated, and to make a mistake can be costly, so make sure you get the legal and accounting advice you need.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Business Tax Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court.
