Before going any further let’s take a look at different types of taxes:

  • Individual Income Taxes
  • Corporate income taxes
  • Payroll taxes
  • Capital gains taxes
  • Sales taxes
  • Gross receipts taxes
  • Value-added taxes
  • Excise taxes
  • Property taxes
  • Tangible personal property taxes
  • Estate and inheritance taxes
  • Wealth taxes

Now that we know a little bit more about the different types of taxes, let’s dive into business-specific exemptions. The most common exemption for businesses is the Section 179 deduction which allows businesses to expense certain property purchases in the year they are purchased. This is a great way to get some extra write-offs on your tax return and can save your business a lot of money.

There are also a few other exemptions that are specific to businesses, including:

  • The Domestic Production Activities Deduction (DPAD) allows companies to deduct a percentage of their income derived from qualified domestic production activities.
  • The Research and Development Tax Credit allows businesses to claim credit for certain research and development expenses.
  • The Work Opportunity Tax Credit provides incentives to employers who hire individuals from certain target groups, such as veterans and low-income workers.
  • Each of these exemptions offers specific benefits to businesses and can help reduce your taxable income. It’s important to understand how each of these exemptions works and which ones are applicable to your business.
  • The Research and Development Tax Credit encourages businesses to invest in research and development activities that could lead to new or improved products, processes, or services. The credit is equal to a percentage of the increase in qualified research expenses for the taxable year.
  • The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is available to employers who hire individuals from certain target groups, such as veterans and low-income workers. Eligible employees must work at least 120 hours per quarter and the credit is equal to a percentage of the first $6,000 of wages paid to the employee.
  • The Domestic Production Activities Deduction allows companies to deduct a percentage of their income derived from qualified domestic production activities. Qualified production activities include manufacturing, construction, and certain types of services.

How to Apply for an Exemption

There are a few different ways to apply for an exemption. The most common way is to fill out IRS Form 8829, which is used to claim the expenses of business use of your home. You can also claim exemptions by filling out IRS Form 3903, which is used to claim the expenses of moving for a new job.

In order to qualify for the Section 179 deduction, for example, your business must be a taxable corporation or partnership. The Domestic Production Activities Deduction is also available only to businesses that engage in qualified production activities.

What Happens if Your Business Is No Longer Eligible

If your business no longer meets the eligibility requirements for an exemption, you may be able to apply for a revised exemption. For example, if your business ceases to produce qualifying domestic products, you may be able to apply for a revised Domestic Production Activities Deduction.

How to Cancel an Exemption if It’s No Longer Needed

If your business no longer needs an exemption, you may be able to cancel it. In order to do this, you will need to file a request with the IRS. You can find more information on how to cancel an exemption in Publication 535, Business Expenses.

Conclusion

It solely depends on what type of business you have and what kind of exemptions apply. Please consult with a tax specialist to see if you are eligible for any specific deductions or credits. This blog post is for informational purposes only and should not be taken as legal advice.
