Nov. 19th Meeting – “Year-End Tax-Smart Strategies for Business Owners and Solopreneurs”

4 11 2009

At the November 19th meeting of FINE Business Networking, John Pearson, CPA, will discuss tax-smart strategies for business owners and solopreneurs. The meeting takes place at the Westport Country Playhouse from 9 to 11AM.

Are you using your business the way you should to help you create family wealth, or is it just creating a job? Do you feel like you’re paying too many taxes compared to large corporations? Is your business helping you pay for all the medical bills your insurance doesn’t cover? Have you ever considered how your children’s college bills could be a business expense? What plans are you making with your retirement dollars for the possibility of higher taxes in the future?

Some options have calendar-year-end deadlines, so planning for next year’s tax return begins now. If you want to discuss some of the answers to these questions, please plan to attend.

With over 20 years in the financial services business, John Pearson brings his clients a wealth of relevant financial experience. Through his association with the Barnum Financial Group, an office of MetLife®, John has extended his practice to better fit the changing needs of his clients. John’s knowledge, along with his strong commitment to creating financial well-being for his clients, makes him the best resource for all of his clients’ financial planning needs.

The doors open at 9AM with the opportunity to network, followed by a welcome at 9:15 and each attendee giving their “30 second elevator pitch” as an introduction. This is followed by the presentation and then additional time to network. The meeting concludes by 11AM.
