Worldwide, we have witnessed an unprecedented rise in the establishment of franchises. A franchise is a great way to take control of your financial future, as franchises have been noted to have a higher success rate than most start-up businesses.
The constant legislative modifications and the inconsistent regulations that govern income and franchise tax on both local and state levels, however, make the situation a lot more complex. Sadly, there has been no rapid increase in expertise and specialization in income and franchise tax laws to match the unprecedented rise in franchising that we have witnessed over the past couple of years. The lack of laser-focused expertise, combined with the dynamic nature of legislature and regulations around income and franchise tax makes effective and systematic compliance miles more difficult. This is why you need an income and franchise tax expert on your side.
