Why is Tax Planning so important?

You’ve filed your taxes for the year, and you’re overcome with a sense of relief and freedom, knowing you can check off that monster of a task until next year rolls around. The figurative “man” is paid, and you can get back to business as usual and cross your fingers for a great tax return. Sound familiar?

It doesn’t have to.

 

We’ve seen countless individuals and business owners employ this “strategy” to their taxes – the one where you kill yourself for a few weeks a year to get them done and then shove them to the back of your mind. While this may provide that sense of temporary relief, it can also rob you of thousands of dollars.

Tax planning is a method of arranging your affairs in beneficial ways that often postpone, reduce, or entirely avoid taxation. It’s done by taking strategic advantage of complicated and ever‐changing tax laws and making smart investment decisions.
