Jarin Dana, Episode #68, How NALTO helps locum tenens physicians, an interview with Jarin Dana

While physicians receive extensive medical training during years of medical school, residency, and often a fellowship, their financial education is usually minimal to nil. While some physicians may wish to complete their own tax returns, they do so at their own risk. Tax planning with the assistance of a professional can help maximize retirement contributions while reducing taxable income with tax deductions.

During this 30-minute interview, we define tax deductible expenses and how to track them, discuss the relative merits of working as a 1099 vs. W2 employee, the advantages and disadvantages of a sole proprietorship, LLC, and S-Corp, and tips on how to work effectively with your CPA.
