Our friends at?Barton Associates, the Locum Tenens Experts, wanted to compile a tax guide to provide their contractors with a summary of the basic tax rules affecting them. Founded in 2001, Barton Associates is a leading locum tenens staffing company serving physicians, nurse practitioners, and hospitals, medical practices and companies throughout the United States.

A few years back, Barton Associates reached out to us through our?MDTAXES website?to see if they could use information posted in some of our articles over the years as a foundation for their guide.? Well, to be completely honest, the team at Barton Associates put together a terrific eight page tax guide for self-employed healthcare professionals that covers the following topics:

  • Deductions
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Health Savings Accounts
  • Estimated Quarterly Taxes
  • Planning

I strongly recommend that any healthcare professional who earns income as an independent contractor take the time to download and read this tax guide.? The information is well written and very easy to understand.
