  • Heads Up! Your Entity Could Be Considered a Tax Shelter Under the New Tax Law

    The new tax law has two provisions which are subject to a “small business” threshold.  Many business owners have heard that this threshold has increased substantially to an aggregated $25 million average annual gross receipts, and they stop there, thinking they qualify as a small business.

This foreseeably should have somewhat of a dampening effect, and yet almost each day, we reach new highs.
