Frequently Asked Questions

As a corporate lawyer, what specific legal-industry considerations affect my tax responsibilities?

As a corporate lawyer, there are a few specific legal-indicative considerations that may impact your tax responsibilities. Some of these include:

  • Professional service corporation (PSC) treatment: Legal services are categorized as a "personal service," meaning lawyers could be subject to particular tax rules for PSC. This could affect your corporate tax rates.
  • Deductibility of legal expenses: Not all legal expenses are deductible, and those that are must strictly be for business purposes. This includes professional fees and expenses related to operating your legal practice.
  • State law considerations: Depending on the jurisdiction you are operating in, different states can have different corporate tax laws that impact your legal practice.

Keeping abreast of these considerations can enable you to optimize your tax situation, and a professional bookkeeper can help ensure that you are adhering to all the relevant regulations.
