Frequently asked Questions

Maybe and maybe not. We will evaluate a lot of factors to help determine if an S corp is best for you and your business.

Yes! We absolutely will help you with this.

For those of you wondering what reasonable compensation is: Section 162 defines reasonable compensation as the amount that would ordinarily be paid for like services by like organizations in like circumstances. It considers both the reasonableness of the total amount paid and the services rendered.

It’s important you work with a qualified tax advisor to help you determine what’s reasonable for you. 

 

You bet. We’ve found a lot of therapists are considering an IRA or have one currently. An IRA is great, but there are many other options available to help you save for the future and also reduce your tax burden.

Our goal is to save you $20,000+ in taxes in the first year alone.. Tax planning is complex, and it requires us to evaluate a lot of criteria to help you save as much money as possible. When you work with us, we partner with you to legally and ethically reduce your taxes as much as possible. We do this every single day and are experts in the field so you don’t have to be!

If you haven’t had an accountant before, you have nothing to worry about!

We can help ensure you get everything up to date and also minimize your existing tax liability.

For some therapists, it even makes sense to go back and amend previous tax returns to get access to more deductions. That being said, you will want to book a call sooner rather than later – because we can only go back so far, and waiting even more time could mean fewer savings for you.

We sure can. You are more than welcome to work with your existing accountant. We understand most CPAs and accountants don’t do tax planning like we do. So, we’re happy to just do the tax planning!

Since we offer services virtually, we have clients in states all across the US. Whether you’re in Maine, Hawaii, or somewhere in between, we can help!

Those in the mental health and wellness space are common clients of ours, but we also work with a handful of other small business owners.

Working with Yonasan and Brook Bay has been SO helpful for us. As a fitness/wellness company, we'd rather spend our energy helping people feel good in their minds and bodies, so when tax time rolls around, we are lucky to have Yonasan managing all the ins and outs for us. We've worked with him for the past 3 years now and don't know what we'd do without him!

Mr sanford always goes above and beyond, always making sure every detail is taken care of (even non accounting stuff). He has made it very pleasant to use him as an accountant in the state of PA. I cant think of ever using someone else, he simply treats the business as its his very own. Thank you
