Navigating Taxation: A Conversation with Gregory Carnes and Suzanne Youngberg

Mike interviews Gregory Carnes and Suzanne Youngberg.

Today, we had the pleasure of sitting down with two brilliant minds in the world of taxation: Gregory Carnes and Suzanne Youngberg, co-authors of the must-have book Fundamentals of Taxation for Individuals: A Practical Approach.


We dove deep into the world of taxes, especially in light of the changing landscape with the rise of the digital economy. Gregory and Suzanne brought their A-game, shedding light on crucial topics like athletes’ tax woes, the impact of the digital economy on entrepreneurship, and why getting your taxes right from the get-go can set you up for life.

One thing that struck us during our conversation was Gregory’s concern for young athletes entering the big leagues. He highlighted the importance of having a solid tax accountant in their corner, ensuring they maximize their after-tax cash flow. Imagine scoring that dream contract only to find out later that you owe a hefty sum to the IRS! It’s a challenging situation, and Gregory’s insights serve as a wake-up call for athletes and anyone experiencing a financial windfall.

Suzanne gave valuable advice for individuals venturing into the digital realm, whether through platforms like OnlyFans or striking NIO deals. With the digital economy opening doors to entrepreneurship like never before, Suzanne stressed the importance of getting your taxes right from the beginning. Trust me, the last thing you want is the IRS knocking on your door because you didn’t dot your i’s and cross your t’s!

One key takeaway from our conversation is that taxes touch every aspect of our lives. As the saying goes, “Death and taxes are the only guarantees in life,” Gregory and Suzanne couldn’t have put it better. From buying a house to starting a business, taxes lurk in the shadows, ready to make or break your financial journey. But fear not because knowledge is power, and that’s where “Fundamentals of Taxation for Individuals” comes into play.
