Why You Should Have a Home Business

Home Business Tax Benefits

Most people hate paying taxes.  That’s true even among those who rightly understand that the government uses that money to provide essential services that work to benefit everyone. That’s nice in theory, but when it comes time to pay, we all hate paying taxes.  While we’d all like to pay nothing if we could, we do acknowledge that paying something is always going to be necessary. How much you pay, however, is a variable amount of money.   We have a progressive tax system in the United States; the more money you earn, the higher the percentage of your income you’re going to pay in income taxes.  What many people overlook, however, is that income isn’t the determining factor in how much you pay.  What matters, come tax time, is the net income you pay. Home Business

Many taxpayers simply use their favorite tax preparation software or hire a preparer to do their taxes for them. They pull out their W2 form from their employer and then they use the numbers on that form to determine how much they’re going to pay in taxes.  Some taxpayers go a bit further, looking for deductions such as the interest they pay on their mortgage or the allowable deductions for dependent children.  Even with that, many taxpayers, if not most of them, are paying more in income taxes than they need to.
