Back by popular demand, Kopsa Otte's April McDaniel will outline the opportunities and challenges facing small business owners as a result of current tax legislation and increased selection for audit. 

What impact does Tax Reform have on salon owners? What deductions might you be missing? What is the IRS looking for when you're chosen for audit?

April will share insights into how the new tax law specifically affects salon owners, how to take advantage of the laws and what an IRS auditor is looking for when they come knocking. She'll share some of the biggest mistakes found when reviewing outside tax returns.

Let's talk about what you need to know, and what you need to do. It's all in the data and numbers don't lie....or do they?
