Tax, Estate, & Education Planning

Tax Planning

Tax Planning

Navigating the IRS Internal Revenue Code (IRC) is a dynamic task that requires experience and expertise. Although we do not specialize in completing tax returns or specific tax services, tax planning surrounding your investments and financial plan is crucial to long-term success. We will work with you to develop strategies designed to ethically maneuver the tax code and its intricacies.

Specific topics we will walk through with you will include:

  • Income distribution planning – which accounts to use for tax-efficient withdrawals?
  • Account set up and funding – Roth or tax-deferred 401(k) contributions?
  • Tax-loss harvesting – transactions at year-end to optimize non-retirement accounts
