Deadline Corporate Income Tax 2023

Attention LLCs and C-corporations with foreign owners! Income tax filings are due March 15th for some LLCs and April 15th for C-corporations. At TABS, we’re here to streamline your tax season. Let us help prepare the necessary figures and documentation needed for filing. We’re working with our network of third-party CPAs or collaborating with your chosen CPA to ensure that a comprehensive approach meets your specific needs.
Need to file on time, or are you considering a 6-month extension? Requests for extensions, with extended deadlines in September/October, must be filed by the original deadline, accompanied by the payment of any tax liabilities. When filing an extension request, TABS and your CPA do require estimated financials even if they are not 100% correct yet. It’s crucial to note that an extension request will be retroactively deemed invalid if it’s later discovered that less than  90% of the FY2023 tax liability was paid by the original deadline (March/April 15), potentially resulting in significant penalties. Let TABS simplify your tax filing process and ensure compliance. Reach out to us today!

Retail Sales Tax

In 2024, sales tax dynamics are positioned to undergo significant shifts due to evolving state budgets, consumer habits, and technological advancements. With nearly 30 states having reduced corporate or personal income tax rates since 2021, sales tax revenue is becoming increasingly crucial for state budgets. However, the National Conference of State Legislatures highlights challenges in maintaining the sustainability of state sales taxes, particularly as the sales tax base erodes with changing consumer and technology trends.

Currently, the taxation of services and digital goods still needs to be updated, with most states not taxing the majority of services despite services accounting for about 70% of personal consumption. Only Hawaii, New Mexico, and South Dakota significantly tax services. Additionally, the taxation of digital products and streaming services needs to be more consistent, with about half of the states still imposing taxes on these modern consumables, reflecting a lag in updating tax laws to match the shift from physical to digital delivery formats.

The complexity of taxing streaming services underscores the broader challenge of adapting sales tax systems to technological progress. States are also diluting their sales tax base by introducing new exemptions for various consumer goods while still taxing many business inputs, which some economists argue should be exempt. As 2024 progresses, states are expected to confront these taxation issues, considering exemptions, the applicability of sales tax to currently untaxed transactions, and exploring innovative strategies to enhance tax revenue from retail sales. Read complete Avalara article here.

HR News: W2 or 1099? Final Independent Contractor Rule Issued

The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced a final rule on worker classification, set to take effect on March 11, titled “Employee or Independent Contractor Classification Under the Fair Labor Standards Act.” This new regulation aims to provide clarity on the distinction between employees and independent contractors under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), revoking the 2021 Independent Contractor Rule that relied on “core factors” for determining employment relationships. The updated rule evaluates several factors on an equal basis, including the opportunity for profit or loss based on managerial skill, the investments by both worker and employer, the permanence of the work relationship, the nature and degree of control over the work, the extent to which the work performed is integral to the employer’s business, skill and initiative of the worker, and any other relevant factors indicating whether a worker is running their own business or is economically dependent on an employer. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) had previously expressed concerns about potential ambiguity in worker classification under the proposed rule and advocated for the retention of the 2021 classification test for its clarity and consistency.

Don’t File Your CTA Too Late, But Don’t File Unnecessarily Early Either!

Over the past 12 months we reported frequently via our newsletter about the Corporate Transparency Act. See here for more info.

You may have received several emails from commercial parties over the past few months, offering to assist you with these filings, and trying to create a sense of urgency where there really is none.
For companies established before 31 December 2023 you have until 31 December 2024 to file your initial report with FinCEN. Keep in mind however, that once the initial report is filed, you will have to update any changes (e.g. changes to directors, officers or UBO’s  or changes to the name or DBA) within 30 days of the change. That is why TABS advises customers not to ‘jump the gun’ and file earlier than necessary. TABS prefers to assist you with the CTA filing in the latter part of 2024, as it potentially saves you time and money. If you still wish to have this done sooner rather than later, we’d be happy to accomodate. Please let us know by contacting us,otherwise we will reach out to you in the second half of 2024 for the required information in order to make the initial filing.
