A personalized overview and analysis of your startup taxes. The simplest way to know where & when you owe corporate taxes, and how your taxes are impacted by Section 174.

Saving Startups Real Money

By filing a tax extension, your startup can maintain eligibility for up to $500,000 in startup tax credits. The average Fondo customer gets back $21,000 each year. You do not need to have revenue in order to claim these tax credits.

What you're missing if you don't file a Federal Tax Extension 💀

If you don't file a tax extension or file your taxes on time:

💰 You cannot claim up to $500,000 in startup tax credits

❌  If you have a global subsidiary or shareholder you will face  $10,000+ in tax penalties

🏦 Section 174 is in limbo - this impacts how much in tax credits you can get and how much in taxes you owe. Wait until it is reversed (likely by October 15).
