2021 Year End Tax Deductions to consider

It's that time of year again when we need to make sure we've taken advantage of every deduction we can before the year ends, so here's my "hit list" of popular (and legitimate) year end tax deductions to consider before the end of the calendar year:

  1. Employee bonuses
  2. Gift cards ($25 increments)
  3. Holiday parties
  4. Annual shareholder meetings (location to be chosen!)
  5. Paying our children (where applicable) for lite duties performed
  6. Royalties paid to those for whom we've used their likeness or images in our marketing materials
  7. Maxing out your retirement plans or funding IRA and SEP's
  8. Purchasing new equipment or vehicles
  9. Updating that tired laptop or desktop
  10. Renting or buying an office space or reimbursement for home offices
  11. Upgrading your desk chair or considering a stand up desk for yourself or staff
  12. Considering new technology for improving your productivity or just getting up with the times
  13. Corporate retreats
  14. Consider hiring a business coach or Alternative Board of Directors to help guide you
  15. Giving back to your community or making charitable contributions
  16. Prepaying or issuing PO's for inventory or supplies used constantly
  17. Sell losing investments
  18. Prepay college tuition
  19. Bunch up medical deductions
  20. Use those FSA's and HSA's

Hope that these reminders help and that you all have a safe and happy holiday season! Thank you all for your continued support this year.
