Restaurant Tax Solutions
As a leader in the tax law field, I want you to be successful when opening and running your restaurant.
I've written the book on avoiding and resolving tax issues within the restaurant industry.
Why A Book About Taxes for Restaurant Owners?
Hello, my name is Robert Boeshaar. I am the owner and founder of the law firm, Robert V. Boeshaar, Attorney at Law, LL.M., PLLC.
I have been working with tax disputes for 20 years. For the first 14 years of those, I worked as a trial attorney for the Internal Revenue Service. I represented the IRS in hundreds of cases, including over forty cases I litigated in the United States Tax Court. In my time at the IRS, I dealt with hundreds of small businesses, including food service businesses or restaurants, many of which had to close because of mistakes they could have prevented.
I saw too many restaurants and other food service companies destroyed by tax problems.
If these companies had someone on their side to help them navigate the complex maze that is the IRS tax code, someone to fight for them, they could have resolved their tax problem favorably and moved on with their lives and businesses. Instead, they spent their valuable time and money trying to deal with the IRS on their own and often reached an unsatisfactory outcome. Their tax problems had a devastating effect on their lives—some even lost not only their businesses but their homes as well.
When I began my own law firm, I wanted to cross over to the “other side,” as it were, and use my background to help taxpayers walk away from their tax problems with their lives—and their businesses—intact. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
I wrote this book for restaurant owners who want to build a successful restaurant business and stay out of trouble with the IRS.
It will be particularly useful for restaurateurs in the early stages of planning their business; but even if you are years into your business, it is never too late to adjust course and put in place some good practices and protections for yourself.
But maybe it is “too late.” Maybe you are facing the prospect of a large tax bill or already owe back taxes to the IRS. Portions of this book, especially in Parts II and III, will help you understand what the law requires and what options are available to you when you are already in trouble. You can even use some of this information to help your employees understand some of their tax obligations and options.
