If you run your own business, and you pay more than $100,000 in federal income tax, you’re probably paying too much.
How can I say this without even seeing your tax return? Simple. I’ve spent 17 years working with tax professionals and their clients. I’ve seen literally thousands of business owner tax returns. Nearly all of them are missing something, somewhere, that could help them pay less. Sometimes those clients are already pretty efficient, and the savings aren’t much. More often, they’re missing huge opportunities that could save them thousands, year after year after year.
I’ve worked with clients earning millions or tens of millions per year. I’ve worked with clients selling their businesses for tens of millions or even hundreds of millions. All of them have professional help. All of them think their tax pro is taking care of their taxes.
But here’s the sad reality about most of those tax pros. They do a perfectly good job of putting the “right” numbers in the “right” boxes on the “right” forms. But then they call it a day. They don’t have the time or the training they need to go beyond that core compliance work.
In short, they do a great job telling you how much you owe. And that’s important! But they do a lousy job of telling you how to pay less. And that’s what you really want.
When was the last time your tax pro came to you and said, “Here’s an idea I think will save you money”? If the answer is “never,” you’re probably paying too much.
My name is Ed Lyon, and I’m CEO of the Tax Master Network. Back in 2005, I developed the first tax planning software for tax pros that focused on concepts and strategies, rather than just projecting future liabilities. Our Tax Architect® software finds the mistakes and missed opportunities that cost their clients thousands in taxes they don’t have to pay. Then we identify the concepts and strategies that can help them pay less.
Since then, over 3,000 tax professionals have joined our community – CPAs, enrolled agents, tax preparers, attorneys, and financial advisors. Our Technical Training Center and live training programs cover dozens of specific planning tools, from choice-of-entity selection to employee benefits to retirement strategies to charitable vehicles to special-purpose vehicles. Training these agents and building this community have been the pride of my career.
Now I’m inviting you to work with me directly.
I’m offering a free Tax Assessment, where I’ll personally look over your returns to see if you’re paying more than the law requires. And if you are, I’ll tell you how we can help stop the bleeding – legally, morally, and ethically. Our Tax Blueprint® even identifies exactly where the law authorizes those savings!
To qualify, you need to meet two requirements:
1. You’re a business owner. By that, I mean you earn the bulk of your income from your own business. It doesn’t matter what kind of business – I’ve worked with service professionals, healthcare practitioners, blue-collar trade contractors, sales superstars, restaurants and bar owners, cannabis businesses, app developers, e-commerce businesses, and professional athletes and entertainers. But your business has to be your main source of income – it can’t be a startup or a side hustle.
2. You pay $100,000 or more in federal income tax – Line 24 on your Form 1040.
That’s it! If you meet those requirements, CLICK HERE to start the process and schedule our conversation. I know you’ve had your fill of Zoom calls (so we’ll use Google Meet). But this one could be the key to saving thousands you probably didn’t even realize you were overpaying. At the end of the call, you’ll know how much you can save, and how we can help you do it.
What will you do with your savings? Renovate your house? Put it away from a more tax-efficient retirement? (You can be sure we’ll talk about that.) Put your kids through the college of their dreams? Or just take a well-deserved vacation? It’ll be your call. But I’m sure you’ll appreciate the challenge of deciding where to put the savings!
