A special message from Phillip A. Ash, CPA
FRED WESTENBERGER SAVED $25,000 ON HIS TAXES. IT ONLY COST HIM $97. YOU CAN SAVE, TOO, AND IT WON'T EVEN COST YOU A PENNY.
Dear Fellow Business Owner,
The IRS hates us. If you want to know why, look no further than Fred Westenberger.
“I saved $25,000 using a tax credit I read about in your publication,” Mr. Westenberger, a small- business owner in Louisiana, wrote us recently.
He was referring to Small Business Tax Strategies, our monthly newsletter that focuses exclusively on the tax problems (and opportunities!) facing small business owners like yourself. Small Business Tax Strategies is—and I say this with a certain degree of pride—the newsletter the IRS loves to hate.
Mr. Westenberger paid $97 for his annual subscription, a 67% discount off the cover price of $299. But you won’t pay full price. You won’t even pay the discounted price. In fact, when the dust settles, we’ll wind up paying you to subscribe to Small Business Tax Strategies.
To learn how this could possibly be so … and, while you’re at it, discover some nifty tax tricks that’ll save you a bundle by themselves … I invite you to read on.
Your new business partner: Uncle Sam?How’d you like to give yourself the gift of a luxury SUV and have Uncle Sam help pay? Revamp your computer systems and write off 100% of the cost? Take expense deductions even when your business suffers a loss? It’s all possible—excuse me, it’s all legal—if you act fast.
Because here’s both the good and bad news: Tax breaks worth tens of thousands of dollars are just waiting to be grabbed.
Tax opportunities are like business opportunities. They can be worth a fortune … or vanish in the blink of an eye. That’s why you need to keep a close eye on them.
But the entrepreneurs we know already have plenty to keep them busy. That’s where Small Business Tax Strategies proves itself. When it comes to taxes, we are your eyes and ears.
Take that “free” SUV from Uncle Sam. If you meet certain conditions, you can write off up to 100% of the cost of a new luxury SUV. It’s perfectly legal, under a loophole the size of a Lincoln Navigator, but many business owners still haven’t heard of it.
Now the loophole itself is in danger. Small Business Tax Strategies is keeping an eye on it, as well as every other tax advantage you rely on.
Take that new IT system your business needs to stay competitive. Software can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars—expenses you’d write off now, if only the IRS would let you.
Ordinarily, the IRS won’t. The taxman usually insists on 15 years. Might as well be forever. But as they say on late-night TV, for a limited time only, the IRS has put software writeoffs “on sale.” Every cent is deductible today.
But after that? Poof. Gone. Forever.
Unless things change, that is. And knowing Congress, they could.
Stay on top of every change. It’s easy. Subscribe to Small Business Tax Strategies now.
Take the little matter of tax writeoffs in years when profits are zero—or even less. These days it happens a lot, especially with businesses just starting out. You’re working 16 hours a day and things are hopeful, but you’re still in the red. That shed you built out back … the $10,000 you dropped on computers and software … aren’t you entitled to any tax benefits?
You sure are. There are ways to take such writeoffs on your Form 1040 … or carry them forward to cut your taxes when things look up. Discover 100% legal ploys even your professional advisers may not know. Subscribe to Small Business Tax Strategies.

Let us pay you to subscribeSo … how much is all this going to set you back?
Zip. Zilch. Nada. That’s what I said at the start. Now I’ll explain.
Ordinarily, subscriptions are $299 a year. The tax tips you discover will easily save 10 times that amount … perhaps even 100 times that amount … or more still.
But you don’t even pay $299. Your first-year price: Only $97. That’s a $202.00 savings.
Now things get interesting.
First, we get you off to a fast start with 89 tips guaranteed to slash both your business and personal taxes. Those 89 tax-slasher tips are contained in Surprise Tax Windfall for Small Business Owners, a Special Report valued at $49. It’s free to you, though, a benefit of your Charter Subscription, cutting your rate from $97 … down to $48.
Deduct another $39 for Anti-Audit Warfare, a second Special Report that’s also FREE when you take this special Charter Subscriber discount opportunity. Audits are on the rise, but Anti-Audit Warfare arms you for the battle.
Your effective subscription price is down to a mere $9 now, but let’s turn that $9 cost into a $30.00 windfall. Get a third Special Report, 76 Ways to Maximize Expense Account Deductions, free with your Charter Subscription. Stash 76 Ways in the same drawer as your expense sheets, where it’s at hand the moment you need it.
Why take a risk?Risk is unavoidable. Risk is to be tolerated, managed. But risk is not your friend. Even with a Charter Subscription that is effectively free—better than free—you still must cut a $97 check at some point. So as a savvy businessperson, you’re entitled to know what’s at risk.
Zero. You risk nothing when you subscribe to Small Business Tax Strategies.
Cancel at any time during your Charter Subscription for a FULL REFUND. Correct: Every cent returned, no questions asked, even if it’s the last day of your Charter year.
It’s a bold guarantee to be sure, but we aren’t worried. We know from 77 years of combined experience that almost no one invokes it. Besides, we have our reputation to uphold.
But what about those three free Special Reports? Well, we can’t resell them after they’ve been handled. Besides, they may prove valuable to someone else in your organization, or even inspire you to resubscribe at some future date. So please hang on to them—along with every issue you’ve received—and accept our thanks for giving Small Business Tax Strategies a try.
