Barbara Miller

Current City: Highland Park, IL
Chapter: Chicago SCORE

I founded and operated a temporary services agency in the health care field for 25 years, then sold it in 2010 to a private equity investor. The business provided speech, occupational and physical therapists on a contract basis to hospitals, schools and rehabilitation centers throughout the Chicago metro area, northern Indiana and southern Wisconsin.

SCORE mentors helped me start my business and also assisted me with the sale transaction 25 years later. As a speech pathologist, I worked in a variety of hospital settings. As a small business owner I had overall responsibility for running a small business, including responsibilities in the following areas:

1. Human Resources, including recruiting, retention, quality appraisal systems and termination
2. Marketing
3. Expertise in Service Industries, including healthcare and education
4. Billings and Collections
5. Search engine optimization (SEO) and web marketing, including experience in integrating web marketing into the sales force
6. Not for profit industry experience

I now serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Barbara & Stephen Miller Foundation, an organization with various interests. In addition, I am currently a board member of several non-profit organizations and also have served as a legislative council member for the American Speech and Hearing Association.

Special tax law provisions may help taxpayers and businesses recover financially from the impact of a disaster, especially when the federal government declares their location to be a major disaster area. Depending on the circumstances, the IRS may grant additional time to file returns and pay taxes. Both individuals and businesses in a federally declared disaster area can get a faster refund by claiming losses related to the disaster on the tax return for the previous year, usually by filing an amended return.
 
The IRS also offers audio presentations on Planning for Disaster. These presentations discuss business continuity planning, insurance coverage, recording keeping and other tips to stay in business after a major disaster. 
 
Visit their Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief for Individuals and Businesses section of the IRS site for more.

 

The IRS maintains a valuable collection of resources for small businesses called the Small Business and Self-Employed Tax Center.  Visit their site for forms, articles, videos, webinars and audio presentations for small businesses.
