1. Stock Up

Heavy Duty Spoons, 3 Simple Ways You Can Save Money on Taxes

It may seem counterintuitive, but spending more money on your business means you'll spend less in taxes. When you buy supplies for your ice cream shop, it counts against your taxable income. Stocking up on supplies before the end of the year means you'll be taxed on less income.

Buy your necessary supplies in bulk at the end of the year to save on taxes! Increasing your expenses will lower your taxable income. You can stock up on the basics for your ice cream shop like heavy-duty dessert spoons or 8 oz ice cream cups. Just make sure to buy them before December 31!

2. Give Bonuses

Giving your employees bonuses is a great way to show them how much you appreciate their hard work. And, it's also a great way to save on taxes. When you give bonuses, the money isn't considered taxable income. So, if you're looking for ways to reduce your business's tax bill, consider giving your employees bonuses!

Remember, bonuses are only tax-free if they're given before December 31. So, if you want to take advantage of this tax break, make sure to give your employees their bonuses before the end of the year!


3. Make sure you're taking advantage of all the deductions you're entitled to.

There are a lot of deductions available for small businesses, but many business owners don't take advantage of them because they don't know about them or they think they're too complicated. But if you do your research, you can find deductions that can save you a lot of money.
