How Important Are Taxes to a Seller? - Tax Strategies & Considerations from the Sellers' Point of View

When a successful business owner can look forward to a large payday from a sale, they can also look forward t a large tax bill from the IRS or State Tax Agencies. So, what can/should a seller do to reduce the impact of taxes and keep more value in their pocket?

During this panel discussion, we’re going to hear from some business owners about their path to sale and how tax considerations and strategies played a part in maximizing the amount of money they were able to keep.


Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what role taxes play in the decision-making process.
