  • When you have a PLLC, what do you put on a personal or business credit card? If you have a business credit card that’s great, but a lot of the credit card companies are not willing to issue credit cards to new small businesses; use a personal credit card and make sure to separate personal and business expenses
  • How do you claim the solar credit on your personal residence? Use Form 5695
  • Should I file a return with my kids as dependents or should they file their own return if they are paid from the family business? If they are dependents and not supporting themselves, they are still dependents on your return; however, the children can file their own return as well and claim the standard deduction up to the amount of their earned income plus $300
  • I have a rental property in California. When I go there to work on it, can I use per diem plus mileage rather than actual receipts for housing and meals? Depends if you are self-employed or you have the rentals owned personally, you cannot use the per diem for housing but can use it for meals
  • I haven’t done taxes for 2020 and I’d like to know how to write-off bills for my emotional support animal. Can that be done with business taxes? Maybe, depends on the IRS’ primarily for and but for tests
