Few things are more frustrating to a professional than income taxes. As part of a coordinated, fee-only financial plan tax opportunities are considered. Since many professionals earn above average income they have to deal with issues originally intended to “tax the rich”. For example, the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) and the Affordable Care Act taxes on investment income and capital gains. Tax planning is different than tax preparation. Tax preparation looks at what the situation is and what to do about it. Tax planning looks ahead and attempts to see what issues may lie ahead.
