Helping You Reduce Your Tax Burden
Our Comprehensive Wealth Planning services include proactive tax planning.
Our team has extensive experience in designing and implementing tax planning strategies to reduce income and capital gains taxes.
Here’s what we do for you:
- We run tax projections during the year to help you estimate your tax liability and to determine if you need to adjust withholding or estimated tax payments.
- We continuously look for tax-loss harvesting opportunities in your taxable accounts to help reduce or eliminate future capital gains taxes.
- We research and develop tax planning strategies for you to help you save on taxes now and in the future.
For example, if a client is expecting little or no taxable income for an upcoming year, we may recommend that they use that opportunity to reduce future year’s taxes. One approach is to implement a number of tax bracket maximization strategies, which may include taking early distributions from an IRA account, or a partial Roth conversion, in order to create a certain amount of taxable income to fill up one or more of the lower tax brackets. In this example, this results in the client paying a bit more taxes today to save a larger amount in the future.
As another example, we often help our business owner clients structure the sale of their business in a way that maximizes their net return. For example, if a client is negotiating to sell his or her business, we’ll work proactively with them to analyze ways to structure the sale so they pay the lowest amount of taxes.
Note: the tax planning examples provided herein are for illustrative purposes only and we advise prospective clients to consult with their tax and legal advisors prior to implementing any of the tax planning strategies mentioned herein.
