TAX TIP         When you’re making investment decisions, always consider the impact of income taxes and the expected rate of inflation on your investments. In other words, think about the after-tax real rate of return of investment alternatives in relation to their risk. Income tax can represent a substantial cost on your investments. And remember that accrued (but unpaid) interest income on investments you purchased after January 1, 2019 can be deferred until 2020 for tax purposes.

TAX TIP         Considering selling your business? Careful preparation is necessary throughout the process from both an after-tax value perspective and a smooth process perspective. Business and tax factors are equally important to helping you achieve your objectives. When selling your business, it’s critical to have solid financial information since the buyer will use that to assess the company’s value. You will also want to have the optimal tax structure that provides the greatest after-tax proceeds. For example, it’s advisable to remove certain assets from your business before selling to help ensure you will have access to your LCGE lifetime capital gains exemption which presently is almost $870,000 per person!  Contact us now so that we can you achieve your financial goals!
