Keep it simple! “Small” manufacturers may opt to use simplified reporting methods
Abstract: The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act expanded the tax code’s definition of “small business” to include those with average annual gross receipts of $25 million or less (adjusted for inflation) for the three preceding tax years. Manufacturers that qualify as small businesses may be eligible for simpler reporting methods that could also defer federal income taxes. This article takes a closer look at the relevant tax rules.
