To prepare for a business audit, an IRS examiner generally does research about the specific industry and issues on the taxpayer’s return. Examiners may use IRS “Audit Techniques Guides (ATGs).” These guides are available on the IRS website. So your business can use them to gain insight into what the IRS is looking for in terms of compliance. Many ATGs target specific industries, such as architecture, art galleries and veterinary medicine. Others address issues that frequently arise in audits, such as executive compensation and passive activity losses. The IRS has revised or added new guides this year, including for construction and retail. For a complete list of ATGs: bit.ly/2rh7umD ... See MoreSee Less
If you’re a business owner and getting divorced, tax issues can complicate matters. Your business interests are one of your biggest assets and in many cases, your marital property will include all or part of it. You can generally divide most assets, including business ownership interests, between you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse without any federal income or gift tax consequences. When an asset falls under the tax-free transfer rule, the spouse who receives the asset takes over its existing tax basis and existing holding period. Later on, there will be tax implications for assets received tax-free in a divorce. bit.ly/3zgUrCD ... See MoreSee Less

What if you guarantee a loan to your closely held corporation? Before agreeing to act as a guarantor of a debt of your corporation, be aware of the possible tax consequences. If the business defaults on the loan, and you make good on the obligation, the payment of principal or interest generally results in either a business or a nonbusiness bad debt deduction. If it’s a business bad debt, it’s deductible against ordinary income. A business bad debt can be either totally or partly worthless. If it’s a nonbusiness bad debt, it’s deductible as a short-term capital loss (subject to certain limitations). A nonbusiness bad debt is deductible only if it’s totally worthless. bit.ly/3mcsSH0 ...
