Do your business transactions involve a lot of cash? Because cash transactions are, or can be, anonymous, the IRS takes a special interest in "cash intensive" businesses. One indication of this interest is the "Cash Intensive Businesses Audit Techniques Guide" developed by the IRS. The goal of the guide is to assist IRS examiners in identifying specific issues, business practices, and examination techniques for businesses that primarily deal in cash.
What does that mean for your business? A cash business is generally not required under tax law to use a specific type of bookkeeping method. Still, the added scrutiny means you'll want to be particularly careful about maintaining books and records that accurately reflect your income and expenses. Here are three suggestions to get you started.
Please call us for more recommendations and guidance on establishing and maintaining a bookkeeping system that can help you support the income and deductions you report on your tax return.
