For life transitions:
Life transitions are hard enough, but dealing with what to do with taxes can be overwhelming. Tax decisions, and tax planning, are critical to achieving optimum outcomes for a wealth management strategy. At the same time White Oaks has a keen understanding that tax planning is different than tax preparation. The tax preparation process is thinking about what one can do about what is now. Tax planning is thinking about how things will play out over the many possible years of your wealth management plan. Life’s big transitions often come with complex tax decisions and the immediate consequences, as well as the long-term impacts, need to be considered.
Unique choices need to be made when deciding whether to do a Roth conversion, tax a lump sum from a pension or how to take a payout. An inheritance will also result in a difference of whether one should receive or disclaim an inheritance. There are an endless number of situations where good tax planning will have an impact. A comprehensive financial plan is the best way to shine a light on the best potential choices to produce an optimum outcome.
