Westbrook Business Tax Information

Are You Paying Business Taxes?

Just like individuals, businesses must pay taxes based on the company's profits, capital gains, investments, property owned, and labor-related taxes. If you are a business owner, you should meet with a Westbrook business tax attorney to ensure you are correctly assessing and paying the taxes you are required to pay.

Business Type Determines Which Taxes Must Be Paid

The business taxes you may be obligated to pay are determined by the type of business you operate. Here are the most common kinds of business taxes: income tax, employment tax, excise tax, and self-employment tax. Requirements vary depending on whether your business is small or large, experienced losses, is incorporate or a sole proprietorship or an S corp. Tax law is complicated, and to make a mistake can be costly, so make sure you get the legal and accounting advice you need.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney's hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For "routine" legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
