Part 2: Taxes Dos and Don'ts

MAY 6, 2020 - We can’t talk about finances without talking about Uncle Sam! Nobody wants to pay taxes but it’s better than having the IRS show up at your door. So, how do you make sure you’re paying what you need to and keeping what you can?

In this session we’re get into all the dos and don’ts of taxes. Some topics include:

  • What counts as a “business expense” for athletes?
  • What you should plan to do with that refund
  • The tax professionals you should be working with
  • LLCs, S-Corps, and Sole Proprietorships: What’s right for me?

This session will help you whether you’re still getting your tax return completed for last year or needing to make sure you’re doing what you should be to get ready for next year. There’s no time like the present!
