Entrepreneurs are a rare breed. Their passion is relentless and enviable until they realize they have missed a few important details. Too many times businesses are born without the proper financial structure leaving them vulnerable to innocent mistakes that can cost them more than they bargained for.

In this presentation, you will learn how to spot risk for small-business owners, identify solutions for compliance issues related to sales tax, payroll tax, and income tax and learn how to advocate for our clients when IRS comes knocking.
