I have a S-corp. This year we had an amazing year with a large profit. As a 100% shareholder, I have taken out W2 and some as distribution. Still money is left in the corporation bank account. I still have available section 179 allocation to write off. However, my CPA told me that I don't have enough basis to use the section 179. Therefore, I will have a high tax liability next year. He explained but still confusing.
He said to hold off the deposit till next year and accelerate the business expense.
1) How can I increase basis? What do I have to do to increase basis? I have a business loan of $400k and pay $4500 every month. About $3000 is paid down on principle. So, is that mean $36,000 increase in basis?
2) Is money left in the corporate account subject to personal tax?
3) Can I deposit the money I took out as distribution back to lower my personal income tax?
4) Should I appraise my business to have a higher value so that it can have a higher basis? If yes, where do I get the appraise from that would not flag the IRS?
5) I heard that if I pay more State Tax, then that would be tax deductible. And, I will get the overpaid State tax back next year. How much is ok to pay more without being flagged by IRS?
As a business owner that does payroll manually (not with Quickbooks
As a business owner that does payroll manually (not with Quickbooks or other payroll software) what is the best (most efficient and reliable) method to stay up-to-date on the FEDERAL tax rates.
I am a farmer and file a schedule F (wife and I file together).
I am a farmer and file a schedule F (wife and I file together). My wife and i recently acquired mineral acres in Nov. 2011. We would like to sell them, but have realized we would have a 40% tax rate on the sale of the minerals because it has been less then a year.
OK, so if we sell them now, I realize the high tax rate, but I believe i should be able to nuetralize the taxes owed with purchase of say a tractor that I can deduct up to $125000 this year alone (sect. 179).
So question is can I write off the tractor against the income on these mineral acres. I see no reason i can't but they are two different things entirely. I have always taken deductions being a farmer against other earnings - like this mineral sale would be. Appreciate the help. Thanks
