There are few mantras in the world as dependably true as the one regarding the government’s revenue services: “Don’t mess with the IRS.” As the economy tumbles through the tumultuous throws of a worldwide pandemic, government policies and actions come and go, new loans and payouts are dolled out, but the other old adage, ‘nothing in this world is certain, except death and taxes’ remains as true as ever, meaning you’d better pay what you owe, or else.
Accurate bookkeeping has always been key to not only staying in business but staying out of jail. Just ask Al Capone, the infamous Prohibition-era gangster who was caught not for the pile of bodies he left behind, but the 22 counts of federal income tax evasion he was eventually sentenced over. Crime may pay, but some of that had better make its way into Uncle Sam’s pockets or else you are going to run into some real state-sanctioned thuggery.
As the pandemic progresses and more government programs roll out to assist in the recovery effort, good bookkeeping might make the difference between your small business dying out in the economic destruction reeked by COVID and living to see another day. To best navigate these new and uncertain waters, you need to be constantly updating your financial knowledge to ascertain what programs you can take advantage of to stay afloat.
For many of us, that is a step too far in a direction we don’t specialize in or have time to learn about. There is not a lot of time to read up on how to repair a leak when your boat is quickly filling up with water, so for these matters we can turn to some of the experts.
