You have the power to overcome your fears or past negative experiences around your taxes and build a thriving successful business of your dreams.
Keeping up with your taxes without any prior knowledge can be very overwhelming on top of trying to run your own business I know.
Listen, getting a letter from the IRS can seem daunting.
- You started a business but you really don’t know what your tax responsibility is.
- You feel like you are paying way more in taxes than you should.
- You turned your taxes over to someone who you thought would take care of things timely only to learn they didn’t.
- You owe back taxes and want to never return to this predicament again.
- You are growing and what to hire staff but don’t know the tax implications of employees and contractors.
- You are fearful about being audited by the IRS and cross your fingers that your turn isn’t up anytime soon.
- You are ready to finally empower yourself with knowledge and operate like the CEO you are.
- You are tired of possibly overpaying in taxes, and living in fear of Uncle Sam.
Reality Check: From day one when you start a business Uncle Sam expects you to comply with federal tax laws. No excuses or ignorance of the law will be an adequate defense.
Don’t let this part of the business go neglected and end up costing you more money and possibly your business.
Maybe you have heard a horror story or two from relatives or fellow business owners but this does not have to be your experience
You may be tempted to simply put this on the back burner and not deal with it. There are consequences to this approach, I’ve seen first hand the devastation and the toll this matter can have on business owners, their marriages, families etc.
I want to help you avoid this treacherous road.
So why am I doing this?
First, allow me to introduce myself.
Hello, I’m Angela Randolph, CPA and 4 years ago I decided to leverage my 20+ years of experience in accounting, audit, finance and tax compliance to help small business owners achieve their financial goals. From this desire I birthed my firm Stellar Ledgers® which offers financial accounting, consulting, coaching and training services to service-based businesses.
I’ve had the privilege of working with some incredible business owners and nothing has given me more purpose and sustained zest than seeing CEOs gain financial freedom, independence and security through entrepreneurship.
I too felt trapped in Corporate America, a job with fixed salaries, incremental cost of living raises, furloughs, that offer limited career opportunities. I knew the key to wealth building was through owning assets…ie a business. So I 1000% could relate to clients and business owners across the United States because I wanted the same for myself. Sure running a business has some risk but the rewards are so much worth it.
I’ve spoken to many business owners at all income levels, and I’ve repeatedly heard countless stories about tax issues, problems that wreak havoc on people's lives.
I knew I had to do something to try to alleviate this problem. I’ve examined 100s of tax returns for businesses on the state and federal level so I know the traps that owners may fall into if they are not aware of their compliance responsibilities. Costly missteps can have a major impact on both your personal and business finances.
With this online course providing easy to understand training step by step from start to finish, business owners can gain the knowledge they need to operate a successful business without the fear of taxes looming around them. Plus you’ll have access to a Certified Public Accountant throughout the learning process.
Sure tax laws change, yes they do but I’m not going to teach you how to be a tax accountant by no means. This is about the fundamentals and entire framework by which you need to consider when making important decisions in your business. Decisions that have tax implications from day one such as choosing your business structure.
Why should I do this?
Can't I just hire a CPA?
You are the Ultimate Responsible Party! The buck stops with you, the business owner. Sure you can and should hire a CPA to prepare your taxes I encourage you to however there are fundamentals to business taxes that every business owner is expected to know. I believe in empowering entrepreneurs with this framework so they can make better strategic decisions, have effective conversations with their professional team of advisors and eliminate any inherit fears you may have about taxes in general and more importantly keep more of the money they generate.
KNOWLEDGE that EMPOWERS plus SAVES YOU MONEY!
Because you know what happens when you finally know how to leverage your taxes to your advantage?
• You choose the appropriate business entity that will give you maximum tax savings for your circumstances.
• You can plan properly for required tax filings without missing deadlines and incurring additional fees.
• You can hire employees and contractors with confidence and not fear of state and federal tax authorities breathing down your neck.
• You’ll breeze through any IRS examination knowing how to support your business deductions and side-step red flags.
Imagine being able to acquire the knowledge, confidence and power to run your business more efficiently in less than 6 weeks saving valuable time and money.
