When Should You Plan?

Income Tax Planning should be done throughout the entire year but it is most important at the end of each year (i.e., “year-end” tax planning).  Depending on your situation for the current tax year, it may make sense to defer income, if possible, into the following tax year and to accelerate deductions, if appropriate, into the current tax year. 

Consider these tax planning strategies:

Our Certified Financial PlannersTM are also Certified Public Accountants that can help you find the best strategies.

  • Prepare Multiple Year Income Tax Projections
  • Considering the Impact of the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)
  • Avoiding Underpayment of Estimated Tax Penalties
  • Strategies for taking Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from IRA accounts
  • Taking advantage of all available income tax deductions
  • Tax Loss Harvesting” – Consider offsetting capital gains by realizing capital losses
  • Consider a “Donor-Advised Fund” for charity
  • Consider a Roth IRA Conversion
