• Consider new tax rules as a business owner saving for retirement

    The new tax rules implemented by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), which went into effect in 2018, added a new deduction for income received from a pass-through entity.

  • Charitable lead trust

    A charitable lead trust can be a great way for an individual to leverage his or her generosity, producing tax savings that can be used to provide greater benefits to both the individual's favorite charity and his or her own family.

  • Charitable giving

    Charitable giving can play an important role in many estate plans. Philanthropy cannot only give you great personal satisfaction, it can also give you a current income tax deduction, let you avoid capital gains tax, and reduce the amount of taxes your estate may owe when you die.

  • Estate planning and income tax basis

    Income tax basis can be an important factor in deciding whether to make gifts during your lifetime or transfer property at your death. This is because the income tax basis for the person receiving the property depends on whether the transfer is by gift or at death.

    Taxes can take a big bite out of your total investment returns, so it's helpful to look for tax-advantaged strategies when building a portfolio.

  • Giving the gift of an education to the next generation

    Everyone knows and loves the feeling they experience when someone gives them a gift. That experience can be further heightened when the gift comes from a parent or grandparent, regardless of the recipient’s age.

  • Best states to retire…From a tax perspective

    You spend your life working hard to build a nest egg, saving toward retirement in hopes of maintaining a comfortable lifestyle and enjoying the fruits of your labor.

  • Understanding IRAs

    Both traditional and Roth IRAs feature tax-sheltered growth of earnings. And both give you a wide range of investment choices.
