E-commerce and Mobile Commerce International Tax Planning for the Small Business

E-commerce and Mobile Commerce International Tax Planning  exists because our international tax laws were written by a man born in the 1860’s.  This is not a typo.  He grew up in the world of Pony Express and steamship commerce.

In the 1930’s he became the Chairman of the Congressional Tax Committee.  His view of commerce was the late 1800’s.  Congress has never changed our international tax laws.

These tax laws work just fine in the industrial age but  now these ancients laws create legitimate loopholes for e-commerce and cloud based businesses.

E-commerce and Mobile Commerce International Tax Planning for the Internet of Things.

We are in the age of “internet of things,” 

The  industrial age tax laws provide many unique tax savings for the e-commerce business, the contract manufacturing business, and the internet marketing business.

My easy to read book, International Taxation in America for the Entrepreneur, provides the tried and true blueprint for saving taxes for today’s E-commerce businesses.  I have the first three  chapters on this link.

The first three chapters are easy to read but are hard to believe.  I mean, is it really possible that Congress has done nothing about international tax laws since the Great Depression in the 1930s?

And there is more unbelievable events.  The designer of the tax law was born just after the Civil War.  His father served in the Confederate Army.   His parents named him after Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

And there is more.   The writer of our international tax law had only a high school education.  To him, text messaging was the telegraph.

So, get the first 25 pages, for free, of my popular book on international tax planning with an emphasis on e-commerce and cloud based products on this link.

Or buy the book at Amazon for $9.50, on this link.   By the way, Amazon has a seven day return policy.  So, if you don’t like the book, just send it back (which is easy to do as a Kindle book0

Robots, Apps, Video Streaming and 3D Printing Small Business Tax Planning Strategy for Robots, Apps, Video Streaming and 3D Printing

 Robots, Apps, Video Streaming and 3D Printing Small Business Tax Planning Strategy is unique. Our tax laws never imagined this technology.

  21st Century business is nothing like 20th Century business. It is as easy as comparing the cell phone you owned in 1999 with your smartphone now.

 The tax planning on the internet is that 1999 style tax planning.  You know, that year-end meeting where you are told the same stuff year after year.

But you will never achieve the 14% tax rate paid by Big Business if you think like a small business (more on the 14% tax rate here).

The business news headline “Bank Of America Opens Branches Without Employees” got my attention.  B of A also has one of the better smartphone apps for online banking.  The important tax planning and business trend are “no people”.  Instead, machines that work 24/7 with no sick pay, employee suites, or family leave.

Next, Ford Motor Car announced it is using 3-D printing in manufacturing instead of robots, to produce much of their cars.  Ford is not the only big business moving beyond Robots.  Redbox (the DVD rental kiosk franchise) is closing thousands of kiosk and is streaming the videos.

Myths that restrict your offshore tax planning include:
1. Income deposited into a foreign bank account is foreign source income. Place of bank deposit does not determine so the source of income.  Deposits into U.S. banks can still be foreign income and deposits in a foreign bank can be U.S. taxable income. 

2.The “Dutch Sandwich” helps U.S. firms avoid U.S. taxes.  This ancient tax treaty plan is used to prevent European tax.  E-commerce and cloud base businesses do not need to use tax treaties to avoid taxes.
3. Switzerland is a tax haven.  Switzerland is a high tax country.  Each canton (which is similar to a state) determines the income tax for businesses in that canton. There is no Swiss federal income tax.
