Did you Know Social Security Income is Taxed?

Tax Reduction Strategies
Statistics show that most business owners trust their CPA more than their spouse. The next trusted adviser is their financial adviser.
Many people have not had their tax returns evaluated to make sure they are legally, ethically, morally getting the maximum tax deductions available. It is important that your financial plan is designed to work whether the market fails (again) or you get sick, injured, disabled or die early. Contingencies are very important.
Many CPA’s prefer to process tax returns which is their preferred specialty. I find no fault in that. However, many CPA’s do not focus on the select few IRS codes that allow higher and simpler (less chance of audit) deductions for those who are high income earners or business owners.
Failed Financial Plans
Too many people wait 30 years to find out that their financial plan was set up to fail from the beginning while, their financial adviser has been always making a profit (fees) from your investment account regardless of the market’s condition.
