"Dan Pilla probably knows more about the IRS than the commissioner of the IRS. His work is the final word on IRS issues."
The Associated Press
I have known IRS Tax Expert Dan Pilla for almost 20 years and we have done hundreds of shows, seminars, etc. This is the smartest guy in the room when it comes to the IRS. He has written I think 15 books. Honestly, I have lost count. My favorite one is the IRS Problem Solver. It is the step by step definitive guide to dealing with the IRS. Now I have a new favorite book. He just wrote a new book called - Small Business Tax Guide - The Complete Guide to Organizing and Operating your Small business.
Just like all of his books, they are complete step by step manuals that are easy to understand. Reading through it, I was surprised by what I didn't know. I have been a small business owner for 27 years, and I was learning new things. This is the problem. What you don't know can hurt you when it comes to the IRS. This isn't a book on how to beat the IRS and get out of paying taxes. By the way, there is no gray in the tax code. It is very black and white, contrary to the infomercials on TV. This is about what you need to know to successfully navigate small business taxes and protect yourself from the IRS.
I GET NOTHING FROM RECOMMENDING THIS BOOK! I think that every small business owner, whether you have been in the business for a long time or just starting - you need this book. I had Dan on the show Wednesday. Here is a LINK to the podcast. Dan will be on display for Part II today (Thursday 2/13). For more information, go to www.taxhelponline.com.
