What is tax planning?

Tax planning involves looking closely at each unique tax situation to come up with a plan that is most efficient for that taxpayer. There are many things to consider when developing tax strategies. Some of the things we focus on are:

Maximizing tax returns:

Reducing tax liabilities and increasing returns puts more money in your pocket.

  • take full advantage of deductions & credits
  • offset gains & losses

Realizing Long-Term Goals:

 Reach your goals, expand your portfolio, and secure your future by making the best choices in the present.

  • retirement planning
  • asset management
  • investment portfolios

Fiscal planning and budgeting:

Be ready for anything, build wealth, and open new doors by maintaining a stable budget and a positive financial forecast.

  • funding large purchases
  • properly timing the sale of assets
  • financing ventures and expansion goals

There isn't just one type of tax planning—in fact, there are three. 

  • Purposive: This type of tax planning is purposeful—its strategy involves using tax provisions to specifically get the maximum benefit. This involves making the correct investment selection, diversifying income, and more. 
  • Permissive: Simply put, permissive tax planning conforms to taxation laws. 
  • Long Range and Short Range Tax Planning: Long and short range tax planning, respectively, start at different times of the year. Short range tax planning is often implemented at the end of the fiscal year. This is done to limit tax liability, and find savings through short term methods. Long range, on the other hand, introduces more long-term tax saving strategies, and is implemented at the start of the fiscal year. 

Why is tax planning necessary?

Tax planning is necessary because taxes are mandatory. Everybody must pay taxes. Individuals, small businesses, corporations, and even entities like estates must pay taxes.

Nobody wants to pay more than their share; nobody wants to make a mistake that could bring audits and penalties; and nobody wants to spend large amounts of time worrying about taxes. These issues are easy to avoid by having an efficient tax strategy in place.
