Tax planning is important for every existing tax bracket. Taxpayers in any bracket and complexity level are subject to the changes in their taxation brought about by life events, such as marriage, new children, selling a house, or changes in employment and income level. While few people would be likely to make a decision on one of these life changes based on the tax implications, they can greatly benefit from knowing how these events will affect credits, deductions, phase-outs and other factors.The under served market is in the middle and upper middle classes, where individuals are still likely to have investment decisions and may find themselves dipping into their investments, possibly facing tax debt as a result.
Seeking professional tax advice on significant transactions is usually money well spent. One mistake a lot of tax payers make is preparing and tackling their own tax return. If tax planning was a simple diy project there would be no tax professionals. There would be no continuing education courses for them to stay on top of the profession. Having a tax professional look at your present and hypothetical future tax implications is a good idea for such a serious financial aspect in your life.
Now is the time to get proactive with your tax planning so that you will be in compliance with new tax laws that are headed our way. Remember, use an experienced tax professional whose job is to keep you compliant.
