Synopsis:

The largest employer in the US is the small business owner. In fact, there are over 24,000,000 small businesses in the country and the number is growing significantly. Small business owners have a full plate. Indeed, they spend most of their time just keeping the business going. They are experts in their field, not in taxes. But, they still have to pay taxes. And, with proper planning and understanding, the small business owner can save significant amounts of money. Barbara Weltman's book provides the tax facts, strategies, and latest up-to-date information that a small business owner needs to maximize deductions and reduce payments to the minimum.
