Beauty Salons & Barber Shops Edition

The IRS Is Looking For the Ugly Truth In Your Salon Business!

Your clients come to you seeking beauty. Cuts, perms, updos, massages, manicures, tanning – whatever services you are offering to your clients to brighten their outlook on life. The IRS sees a business filled with potential worker classification issues and undereporting of income.

The salon industry is cash intensive, which makes it a prime target for an Internal Revenue Service tax audit. The books and records provided are often limited, especially in salons or shops that are not computerized. One of the biggest challenges you will encounter when responding to an Internal Revenue Service audit will be whether or not your stylists and other salon workers are properly classified.

With your purchase of Uncle Sam's Tax Audit Assistant, Beauty and Barber Shops Edition, you will receive, Absolutely Free, the IRS Manual For Determination Of Worker Classification. This manual is sold elsewhere for as much as $39.00.

Salon Worker Classification and the Internal Revenue Service

"...the one factor which appears to hold overriding persuasive value in the case of hair stylists is the nature of the remuneration under the agreement between the hair stylist and the shop owner. The factors tending to show an employee relationship seemed to predominate over independent contractor type factors in those situations where the remuneration is based on a percentage of earnings, whereas the opposite is true in those situations where the hair stylist rents the chair for a fixed monthly fee."

The IRS knows that most products are marked-up 100% -are you documenting the discounts properly?

What about income from tips?

"An employee is required to give his or her employer a written report of his or her tips for each month by the 10th day of the next month. This report is required for each month that an employee received tips of $20 or more while working for that employer."

  1. How are walk-ins, cancellations, and no shows designated in the appointment book?
  2. Are hair stylists independent contractors or employees? How are the hair stylists compensated?
  3. Does the salon offer its own line of products? Is commission income being reported properly?
  4. If you’re working 6 days a week are you reporting that you’re working less than 6 days?
  5. Are you reporting income from tips?

If you don’t understand how the answers to these questions can affect your tax liability, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE Uncle Sam's Tax Audit Assistant specifically designed for the Beauty Salon and Barber Shop Industry.

Support Our Troops

 Support Our Troops

Great American Tax Accountant's is proud to announce that a portion of your investment in our products will be sent directly to the Morale Welfare and Recreation Department of our Armed Forces.
Sacrifice is not limited to our men and women in uniform.  Children, spouses and families of military personnel are deprived of special times while their loved ones are deployed far from home.  Even when hostilities subside, they often remain separated – sometimes for years!
With all of the conflicts taking place around the world, the children, especially, are often focused on a theatre of battle where their mother or father is serving.  No one can take the place of the children’s parents, but everyone can make a difference in their lives.  The children and family members left behind need our support now more than ever.
The Morale Welfare Recreation (MWR) Department organizes a variety of activities and programs to address the needs of these individuals – providing quality support, recreation, and educational services to contribute to the retention, readiness, and mental, physical, and emotional well-being and enjoyment of the military community.
