Personal Tax for Business Owners and Partners
If you own an unincorporated business or are a member of a partnership, you have additional areas to deal with on your personal tax return. To your benefit, you have until June 15 to file your personal tax return. However, you must pay the tax you owe by April 30. As a partnership, you may be required to file a separate return by March 31. We can help you understand the filing requirements for your partnership, including when and if you should file a partnership return.
As a business owner or partner, you may also be entitled to additional deductions that you may not be aware of.
