5 Step Guide to Complete Retirement Security
Taxation and its seemingly inescapable burden on all forms of income and assets is one of the biggest impediments to building wealth. Yet tax planning is often overlooked by investment firms, making it more difficult for investors to climb the wealth ladder. At Dash Investments, tax planning is a critical component of our comprehensive advisory services to ensure our clients keep as much money as possible working toward their future.
WHAT IS TAX PLANNING?
Tax planning is the process of organizing your financial affairs to maximize your tax efficiency and minimize your tax liability. It involves making strategic decisions and taking advantage of various tax laws, deductions, credits, and incentives to legally reduce the amount of taxes you owe on income and investment earnings.
WHY IS TAX PLANNING IMPORTANT?
Taxes impact nearly every aspect of your financial life. By integrating tax considerations into your overall financial strategy, you can align your tax planning with your long-term goals. Tax planning can have a positive effect on your cash flow, reducing the amount of taxes you owe and deferring tax payments to future years; and on your investment performance, enhancing after-tax returns to compound earnings faster.
