Tax related FAQs for dental practices
What tax deductions are available for my dental practice?

Are dental equipment purchases tax-deductible in the year of purchase?

What are estimated tax payments, and do I need to make them as a dental practice owner?

Dental practice owners typically need to make these payments if they anticipate owing more than $1,000 in taxes when they file their annual return. eeping accurate records is essential to support these deductions.
What is the difference between an employee and an independent contractor for tax purposes in my dental practice?

Can I set up a retirement plan for myself and my employees in my dental practice, and are there tax advantages to doing so?
