Advanced Tax Planning

For most of our clients, taxes reduce income by between 30-50% – or more.  Therefore, planning for taxes – and, moreover, optimizing your finances for tax purposes – is a critical part of planning for success.  We have two decades of experience working with professionals, including those with equity compensation and cross border situations.  

Integrated Tax Planning

  • Given our background in income tax preparation, all our advice is filtered through the lens of tax efficiency.

  • All clients receive a tax projection as part of the Year End Financial Planning Meeting, as a way of guiding decisions to make them as tax-efficient as possible.

  • In addition, we frequently consider multiple facets of tax planning, which other financial advisors may not be equipped to understand:

    • Tax planning over multiple years to ensure lifetime optimization​

    • Trade offs between planning for income tax vs. gift and estate tax

Advanced Tax Planning for Clients with Cross-Border Situations

Advanced Planning for Trust, Gift and Estate Taxation

  • Comprehensive tax planning frequently requires consideration beyond the individual client.  Based on your individual circumstances, we may need to consider inter-generational gift or estate tax implications.

  • Alternately, we may recommend the use of a Trust, and can advise on the income and estate tax implications of different types of Trusts.

  • As part of this planning, we can also offer advanced guidance on the proper selection of assets to donate for charitable purposes, as well as the most tax-efficient vehicle that aligns with your goals and cash flow needs, such as a Donor Advised Fund, a Charitable Remainder or Lead Trust, or even a Private Foundation.
