To encourage small business growth in the U.S., Tom Wheelwright, CPA, CEO of ProVision, and Author of Tax-Free Wealth, emphasizes why tax incentives for business in the Extenders Bill should be permanent tax deductions versus retroactive. Dozens of tax breaks for individuals and businesses expired in January 2014, and this pattern of passing an Extenders Bill at the last minute so taxpayers can claim deductions on their returns makes financial planning a challenge.
What most people dont realize is that the Internal Revenue Code (the tax law) is designed to encourage certain activities that benefit the American public. The current Extenders Bill only deals with 2014, which is already past. So basically, it is a give-away to people who took specific investment actions they hoped would be recognized with tax savings if, and when an extension of the tax benefits is passed by Congress. ~ Tom Wheelwright, CPA and CEO ProVision
While many extenders are for individuals (such as education credits that encourage people to get advanced degrees and further their education), other provisions encourage businesses to take risk and invest in something that will benefit the overall economy. Three of the business tax benefits in the Extenders Bill that are particularly important to small and growing businesses include:
1. Equipment Deductions This Section 179 provision allows small business owners to deduct equipment purchased in the year they purchased it, rather than normal requirement to take a small deduction every year for 5-15 years. The Bill allows small business to deduct up to $ 500,000 of equipment in a single year. This is a terrific incentive for businesses to reinvest their profits back into their business. Without this provision, a business that reinvested its profits would pay tax on money they didnt have, as the profit would be taxed in the current year and the deduction wouldnt happen for several years in the future.
2. Bonus Depreciation - This deduction is equal to 50% of all new equipment purchased during the year. It applies to all businesses, not just small businesses. Whereas the Section 179 deduction applies equally to new and used equipment, bonus depreciation only applies to new equipment. So it encourages the creation of new production equipment, and is intended to stimulate additional business infrastructure.
3. Research and Development Tax Credit - The third and perhaps most important of the business incentives in the Extenders Bill is the research and development tax credit. This credit, which has been an extender ever since it first came into existence (i.e., it was never a permanent provision), provides an incentive to businesses to do new research and develop new ideas.
While the Extenders Bill is only retroactive, and doesnt really provide an incentive for new activity, Wheelwright believes that its passing does give hope to business owners. It rewards those who took the risks in 2014, and provides a baseline for permanent tax reform.
Now that the Republicans control the House and the Senate, President Obama has taken up the tax reform cry. Obama is making taxes his top project on his domestic agenda for the next two years. Wheelwright predicts this tax focus will most likely result in a boxing match between the President and Republican House and Senate with the hope of some real tax reform over the next couple of years.
Looking ahead, Wheelwright underscores, Hopefully, we will get some real tax reform over the next couple of years. It is not an easy battle; nor should it be. There will be winners and losers. Lets hope that small business owners, who provide most of the jobs and economic activity in this country, come out winners. If they win, everyone wins.

Aurora, Colo. (PRWEB) December 02, 2014
Like many other young adults, Richard Asher loved pizza in his 20s so much so that he dreamed of owning his very own pizza restaurant. Now, years later, Asher is finally able to make that dream a reality with his purchase of an existing Pudge Brothers Pizza franchise location.
Prior to taking the plunge into franchise ownership, Asher worked at a home improvement store for 27 years, holding almost every job imaginable. But he wanted something more out of his career and decided to put his decades of experience to the test by branching out on his own.
I wanted to control my own earning potential, Asher explained. As a business owner, he enjoys not having to answer to anyone but himself, and the freedom he has to spend more time on his hobbies, including camping and biking.
Asher called upon small business financing firm Guidant Financial to help him fund his franchise. Using an alternative method known as a Rollover for Business Start-up, he leveraged his retirement funds to invest in his new business without taking a taxable distribution.
[Working with Guidant was] very easy, Asher said of the financing process. [They] handled every step of the way and kept me on track to get the purchase done in less than a month.
Asher is now quick to endorse 401(k) rollovers as a leading method to buy a business. If you want to pursue [owning] your own business and you have retirement funds then I would recommend utilizing Guidant to get you there.
More than just a pizza restaurant, Pudge Brothers Pizza is a community-oriented business that focuses on the core values of respect, neighborhood support, consistency and friendliness. Aside from its hand-tossed dough and fresh ingredients, Pudge Brothers also offers many other delicious menu options to satisfy any appetite, including sub sandwiches, ribs, burgers, chicken, Stromboli, Italian dinners and more.
