One of the most unsettling things that can happen to any business is to find itself the subject of an IRS audit.

What's the first thing you should do when you get that dreaded IRS audit notice? Listen to this episode of Einstein's Theory of Taxability to get some helpful tips on what your next steps should be.

Episode 2 What Small Businesses Must Do to Properly Classify Their Workers
It is imperative that small businesses are both careful and thorough in their tax analysis before they classify their workers as either employees or independent contractors. Because the stakes are exceedingly high, and the IRS is aggressive and proactive when it comes to worker misclassification audits of small businesses. So, today, Einstein's Theory of Taxability focuses on just what steps all small businesses should take to ensure they've done their due diligence in properly classifying their workers--on the front end, before a problem arises. But if a problem does arise, and the IRS comes calling, there may be hope if the business can qualify for what is called "Section 530" relief. The specific requirements for Section 530 eligibility are discussed. If you've enjoyed the podcast, please leave a rating and review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your favorite podcasts.

Episode 1 Profit Motive vs. Hobby
Taxpayers who seek to claim deductions for ordinary and necessary expenses paid or incurred in carrying on a trade or business or for the production or collection of income or for the management, conservation, or maintenance of property held for the production of income must show a profit motive. Without a profit motive behind the activity, in general, a taxpayer is barred from claiming deductions for activities not engaged in for profit under Section 183(a) of the Internal Revenue Code. The big issue is whether an activity is a trade or business (or one for investment) or is rather merely a hobby. A recent Tax Court case illustrates the difference between a profit motive and a hobby.
