Starting and Operating a Business in California is the most complete tax and legal guidebook in existence for California small businesses. The author, a retired California attorney and CPA, and a Harvard Law graduate, provides you with a detailed but easy to read explanation of the tax and legal "ground rules" you need to know to navigate successfully through the complex maze of federal and California tax and business laws and regulations.
The roughly 500 pages (if printed) of each state edition in this e-book series offer far more than a dry description of the applicable business laws and taxes, however. The lively text is peppered throughout the book with key points to consider, including "Cautions," "Planning Points," "Important Points," and "Update Notes" that are highlighted to get your attention.
