What Is Tax Planning?
Tax planning refers to our review of your tax return to identify potential planning opportunities - both now and in the future - to keep your lifetime tax liability as low as possible. This is different than tax preparation (usually done by your CPA or an online service like TurboTax), which is focused on keeping you compliant with what the government thinks you owe each year.
Why Is Tax Planning Important?
Everyone! Regardless of your income sources or filing status, nearly anyone who pays income taxes can benefit from having a professional review of your tax return to identify relevant planning opportunities. At worst, we'll review your return and conclude you are currently maximizing every available tax saving opportunity. That's great "peace of mind" news. Alternatively - and more frequently - we'll identify a handful of tax saving opportunities, both in the current year and in future years.
What Kind Of Opportunities Might Be Identified?
We will evaluate a number of opportunities during tax planning, including topics like most tax efficient retirement vehicles, charitable giving strategies, realizing capital gains, Roth IRA conversions, tax credit eligibility, and more. We can run projections to see how potential changes (e.g., filing status, dependents, the sale of a business, stock option exercises, etc.) may impact your upcoming tax liability.
