How to fix my messy back-years accounting for my Los Angeles, CA business?

If you have messy books for many back years of accounting, it can be overwhelming to try to organize and clean them up. Here are some steps you can take to tackle the task:

Take an inventory: First, make a list of all the records you have, including bank/credit card statements, invoices, receipts, and other documents. This will help you to get a sense of the scope of the project and to identify any missing records.

Set goals: Determine what you hope to accomplish by cleaning up your books. For example, you may want to catch up on your tax filings, prepare for an audit, or simply get a better understanding of your financial situation. Having specific goals in mind will help to keep you motivated and focused.

Create a plan: Develop a plan for organizing and cleaning up your books. This might involve setting aside a certain amount of time each week to work on the project, or breaking the task down into smaller, more manageable chunks.

Gather tools and resources: Make sure you have the tools and resources you need to get the job done. This might include accounting software, a financial calculator, and reference materials such as tax guides or accounting textbooks.

Seek help: If the task is too overwhelming to tackle on your own, consider seeking the help of a professional, such as a local SoCal EA enrolled agent or CPA. They can provide guidance and expertise to help you get your books in order.

By following these steps and working steadily and consistently, you should be able to make progress in cleaning up your books and getting your financial affairs in order.

In case you were not aware of what the FTB is, it is the California board that is responsible for collecting all of the personal income tax and business franchise taxes that are assessed every year for people and companies in California. Formed in 1950, the board replaced the original Franchise Tax Commissioner that was created by the original California Constitution.

The board uses several methods to collect owed taxes. The most frustrating method is the audit and if you receive an exam notice in the mail, you better take it seriously. This should include your right for CA FTB Audit representation. Our tax representation firm can help you get the best possible outcome from your audit.

The CA FTB is made up of three individuals that hold specific positions in the state government. The people who have these three positions are who make up the Franchise Tax Board; California State Controller, Chair of the Board of Equalization, and Director of the Department of Finance.

As hard to believe as it may be, we are now in yet another year and here’s to hoping that 2022 will be significantly better than the last previous years, but we digress. What we’re here to talk about today is IRS TFRP help, or trust fund recovery penalty help, as it is better known.

With tax season coming up fast, our thoughts will soon be turning to our books and accounts, as we look to get all of our taxes in order so as to appease the wrath of the tax man.

If you’re a small business owner, you will likely already be aware that unpaid employment 941 payroll trust fund taxes can cause monumental headaches. When money is held ‘in trust’ it has to be paid to the Treasury on a weekly, semi-weekly or monthly schedule. This is all well and good, but should a business use these funds for any other purposes, I.E for paying rent or utilities, problems with the IRS could potentially arise.

It doesn’t matter whether this money was “borrowed” in good faith at all, if the money isn’t returned, the IRS can actually slap you with the trust fund recovery penalties portion and hit you with employment 941 payroll business back taxes personally.
