Tax planning as a small business is crucial to financial success, and that’s all the more reason to get ahead of tax season. Waiting until the eleventh hour to get the ball rolling increases your chances of getting an audit.

You also run the risk of missing out on significant tax deduction opportunities. Create a plan that flips your tax woes into business transactions.

Mike Jesowshek explains that the biggest mistake made by small businesses is failing to plan. “Most people look at taxes and think of taxes as something that you do in March and April.”

He shares that businesses should be thinking about what can be done throughout the year to save as much as legally possible in paying taxes. “The fact is that if we’re only doing taxes during tax season, there’s a lot of strategies we’re missing out on because we did not implement them throughout the year.”

In the latest episode of the “Winning on Main Street” podcast, Jesowshek, the founder of JETRO Tax, a Milwaukee accounting firm, shares his tips on how to maximize tax deductions.
