Taxes for Dentists


Tax Awareness is Key to Lower Taxes

Tax Projections

Tax Projections is the process of estimating income and deduction for a dental practice owner from various sources, taking deductions as allowed per IRS rules and arriving at a taxable income and tax amount.

A tax projection is based on a set of assumptions.

We start with the income and deduction information from your prior year financial statements to arrive at an estimated income for your current year. We adjust for anything we know about the current year which includes changes in income, tax rates, potential deductions, etc.

We also include, other typical income sources which include spouces' salary, interest/dividents, capital gains.

Then, we calculate what your taxes would be based on those conditions.

We update these projections 3 times a year.

The updates includes changing the estimates with actual numbers from the financial statements of the current year or any other known expected changes.

This keeps you the dental practice owner aware of the changes in your tax situation.

Tax Planning

Tax planning is effectively managing a taxpayer’s financial situation to minimize the tax burden at the federal and state level.

Tax planning could be simple or incredibly complex depending on your situation/goals. We believe that the more complex the strategies, the more they cost and eat away at the net savings and sometimes leading to negative results. Hence we keep it simple.

Our Tax planning engagement includes the following startegies:
  • Entity Selection (Disregarded or PLLC / S-Corp / Partnership)
  • Salary Optimization (S-Corp OR Multiple Dental Practices)
  • Retirement Plan Contributions
  • Kids on Payroll
  • Tax Free Rental Income
  • Health Savings Account
  • Maximizing:
    • Auto Deduction
    • Travel Deduction

(The application of tax strategies will be based on individual circumstances.)

Tax Preparation Services for Dental Practices and Dentists

Dental practices are typically setup as pass through entities such as S-Corporations, Partnerships or PLLCs. Not only do these entities have to file an annual federal tax return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), they are also required to file a number of other tax returns / forms on a quarterly or monthly basis. Non-compliance and/or incorrect filings can result in penalties and interest. Some of the returns are required to be filed on the state level and others on the federal level. Filing requirements differ based on business structure and state. Here is a list of commonly required tax returns and periodic filings for most entities:
