Tax planning is an essential service in wealth management.
We coordinate with your tax professional and provide in house tax advice to augment their work.
The first element of tax planning is to ensure your investments are structured in the most tax-advantageous way possible. We want to let growth assets continue to grow without being taxed and try to shelter income producing assets from taxes whenever possible.
We help optimize your retirement contributions and/or withdrawals to make sure you are maximizing tax savings on both ends of the spectrum. We analyze tax scenarios to determine if things like making a Roth IRA conversion, selling options or RSUs, and donating highly appreciated stock to charity makes sense.
There are so many personal and small business tax questions that simply come up over time. Discussing taxes is a standard agenda item for us in client meetings and we use our collective experience to help make your tax picture a less burdensome task.
Many accounting professionals do not have the time to serve as a pro-active partner on your behalf, and this is where we come in. We want to be the first phone call for all your tax planning questions and we use our tax software to help answer questions relating to your income and deductions.
