An important part of helping clients achieve their financial goals is making sure they don’t miss out on ways to reduce their tax bills. Because taxes are often a significant outflow of resources each year, finding ways to minimize taxes, while investing in a tax-efficient manner, is crucial to success.
The recent passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 is a massive change to our tax system, and it will likely take years before its far-reaching impacts are fully understood. We haven’t seen changes of such magnitude since 1986. This book outlines some of the major tax changes families may face, and provides both classic and new strategies to save on your tax bill, post-reform.
- Highlights from tax reform
- Itemized deductions after the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
