Actually, this happens fairly frequently. I have several clients who pay employees (not owners or officers) bonuses at the end of the year. These bonuses are accrued and can be deducted if paid within 2 1/2 months after the year end.

Additionally, others will use profit-sharing plan contributions to zero out income.

SO this is really not that unusual.

I hope this answers your question. IF you have any more, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer.

Thanks! Have a great week!
