WHAT IS TAX PLANNING?
Using TaxPlanner Pro software which syncs with QuickBooks Online we can project what your taxes will be for the year at any time during the year based on what activity you've had year-to-date, what estimated taxes you've paid and are projecting to pay, and projecting that information out through the end of the year.
Using this app we can identify a list of strategies available for you to take to significantly reduce your taxes prior to getting with your tax preparer.
It will do this for both your business and personal taxes if you desire.
WHAT ARE APPS AND WHY DO I NEED THEM?
The design of QuickBooks Online is to provide the basic accounting software needed to run a business and focus on being the best at those basics.
Because it is in the cloud, Intuit can then allow other third party companies to develop applications (apps) that can sync or connect with QuickBooks Online and pass information back and forth. This allows the companies to develop apps that will enhance the overall bookkeeping/accounting process. These apps can be found in the QuickBooks App Store.
There are over 400 apps that add to or enhance the process in areas such as tax, CRM, inventory, payables, documents, receivables, commissions, security and others. The combination of QuickBooks Online and these apps is very powerful.
