Recent tax law changes could be costing you plenty!
Do you know the most important questions you should ask your CPA before you complete another tax return or see another month go by that could be costing you extra tax dollars?
You need these questions answered now, so you can take full advantage of the new rules while you still have time left in this tax year. Here's just a sampling of the areas to discuss with your accountant and financial representatives.
- Not all dividends are taxed at the new lower rates. Do you know which assets qualify for the new rule?
- How do the new lower capital gains rates affect you? Will you have phantom income that you need to offset by adjusting your investment portfolio now?
- Is there a way to lower your Social Security taxation?
- Is your IRA or qualified plan being penalized and you aren't even aware of it? (One question will answer this for you.)
- Why have America's wealthiest investors removed their children's names as beneficiaries on their annuity contracts? (Don't worry; the kids can actually get more.)
- How to reduce your capital gains taxes and estate taxes.
- How to remove dollars out of your business while reducing your business income tax.
- How to stop unwanted required minimum distributions (RMD's) while increasing the value of your qualified plan and passing it on to your beneficiaries in both an income tax and estate tax efficient manner.
- The most tax- and cost-effective way to pass a business on to family members and/or the management teams, where the founder receives fair-market value for his stock and family members or the management team receive funding needed to make this business purchase.
If your current financial representatives have not addressed these issues, imagine what you may be missing out on.
These questions need to be discussed now, because waiting until next year may mean paying too much tax this year. Timing is the key to using the new tax laws to your benefit. Don't wait until next spring to find out you could have done something to cut your taxes now or that a hidden tax nightmare could be brewing for your heirs.
