What is tax planning?

The phrase “tax planning” is commonly used but not necessarily understood. It is a method for arranging affairs to minimize taxes. By employing effective tax planning strategies, clients have more money to save, invest, and/or spend. A team of business consultants helps clients take advantage of beneficial tax-law provisions, increase and accelerate tax deductions and credits, and make use of applicable tax breaks.

Tax planning involves the in-depth analysis of an individual’s or a business’s financial situation from a tax perspective. The purpose is to ensure tax efficiency or to make sure the client is making the most of tax breaks and not unnecessarily overpaying. During the tax planning process, all elements of the financial plan work together in an efficient manner. This is an essential part of a good financial plan. Reducing tax liability and maximizing the ability to contribute to retirement plans are crucial for success.

Tax planning takes several items into consideration. This includes income, size, timing of purchases, and planning for expenditures. The investments and retirement plans should complement tax filing status and deductions for the best outcome.
