Description

(FULLY UPDATED FOR 2016 FEDERAL TAX RATES AND BRACKETS AND THE SWEEPING FEDERAL TAX LEGISLATION CONTAINED IN THE CONSOLIDATED APPROPRIATIONS ACT OF 2016)

Starting and Operating a Business in Alaska (March, 2016 Edition) is the most complete tax and legal guidebook in existence for Alaska small businesses. The author, a retired attorney and CPA and a Harvard Law graduate, provides you with a detailed but easy to read explanation of the tax and legal "ground rules" you need to know to navigate successfully through the complex maze of federal and Alaska tax and business laws and regulations.

The roughly 500 pages (if printed) of each state edition in this e-book series offer far more than a dry description of the applicable business laws and taxes, however. The lively text is peppered throughout the book with key points to consider, including "Cautions," "Planning Points," "Important Points," and "Update Notes" that are highlighted to get your attention.

FEDERAL LAWS AND TAXES

Federal tax and legal coverage includes individual income, self-employment, estate, gift, and excise taxes, federal payroll taxes, withholding of various taxes; securities laws and regulations; the Americans with Disabilities Act; environmental laws; minimum wage/overtime and child labor laws; anti-discrimination and Health Care Reform laws that apply to employers; immigration laws affecting hiring; OSHA job safety and health requirements; ERISA (employee benefits) compliance; the Family and Medical Leave Act rules; mail order sales and telemarketing regulations; Internet taxation and regulation; and much more.

ALASKA LAWS AND TAXES (UPDATED FOR MAJOR RECENT ALASKA CORPORATE TAX REDUCTIONS AND TAX EXEMPTION OF CERTAIN SMALL BUSINESS CORPORATIONS, PLUS ALASKA UNEMPLOYMENT TAX RATE CUTS)

Alaska tax and legal coverage includes the Alaska state corporate income tax, local sales and use, lodging, property, and unemployment taxes, withholding of Alaska unemployment tax, and other state and local business taxes; state fair employment laws, which may differ from federal; the Alaska minimum wage, overtime, and child labor laws; mandatory workers' compensation insurance and new hires reporting; wage payment requirements; when/if registration of fictitious business names (trade names) is required; other state labor laws; and much more.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND ADVICE

In addition to extensive, up-to-date coverage of federal and Alaska business laws and taxes, you will also find this e-book to be a gold mine of other useful information and advice for running your business. It covers topics such as an entire chapter on site selection for your business; obtaining financing and choosing accounting methods; do's and don'ts when buying an existing business, acquiring a franchise, or signing a lease; pros and cons of corporations, LLCs, and other business entities, as well as Alaska filing fees and taxes for each type of entity. Other chapters deal with subjects such as how to protect your assets from creditors; incorporation in a state other than Alaska; international ISO-9000 standards and certification of your business; use of Universal Product Codes, QR Codes, and RFID tags; how to classify workers as either employees or independent contractors; advice about joining a multilevel marketing program; exporting tips; cash flow management and fraud detection; and estate planning, to name a few covered topics.
