Plan Now for Future Tax Liabilities

Your financial decisions become increasingly important as you get closer to retirement. After building your nest egg, you’ll want to consider your strategy for managing income distributions from retirement and investment accounts – without placing an unnecessary tax burden on yourself.

Tax planning can help you make the most financially savvy decisions for your unique circumstances. After all, you want to enjoy your retirement, not spend your golden years worrying!

Many people make the mistake of thinking only about the growth potential of their nest egg. However, spending time thinking about the tax aspects are equally important.

Are You Eligible for Tax Deductions or Credits?

Changes to your finances can turn tax preparation into a major process. It’s important to think about all of the items that could potentially be deducted (within the law) from your taxes in order to save you money.

That’s why it’s helpful to work with a tax planning expert to create a plan for your finances. Understanding your potential deductions and credits allows you to spend and invest your money wisely throughout the year.

We’ve developed this checklist to start the conversation with you. It should help you consider some of the many deductible items on your taxes. We hope that you find it useful.
