What Is Tax Planning?
Tax Planning is the process of analyzing your finances to determine your tax burden. This allows you to make informed decisions in order to minimize your liabilities and maximize your deductions.
Your total liability is the sum of all taxable events throughout the year. This includes your income, the collection of an inheritance, or the sale of assets, such as a car or home. All of these actions incur taxes that are then owed to federal and state revenue agencies, and the more you earn, the more you owe.
So how do you lower these liabilities to minimize the amount you have to pay in April?
Effective Methods of Reducing You Burden
Michael M. Katz, CPA has been handling tax planning for small businesses from the very beginning. The many years of experience have given Michael unique insights into the process which directly benefit you and your business.
Some of the most effective methods of lowering your liabilities involve decreasing your taxable income. This means taking advantage of IRAs and 401(k)s, which render invested funds non-taxable until collection.
Credits and deductions are another means of protecting your finances. Credits, such as the earned income tax credit reduce your liability, and deductions such as gifts and charitable donations can be claimed on your return.
It is, however, paramount to stay up to date on the most current laws. Tax laws change from year to year, and state to state, and can have a significant impact on the way you plan your taxes. That’s why Michael M. Katz, CPA stays informed of changing tax codes on your behalf. After all, you run a business, not a law firm.
