Sale of many companies exploded higher, similar to the one below, but now must be digested..
Look Back Tax Savings – Spousal IRA – SEP – HSA , These can be done before your filing due date of April 18 to Possible Lower Your 2021 Taxes
With tax season officially underway, actually nearing an end, the official filing date for non-extension regular Form 1040 Filers is April 18th, 2022 (this year) for year 2021 tax filings, just a few weeks out. There are a few tax saving ideas that even with the turn of the calendar can be implemented to possibly help last year’s income taxes.
Self Employed Pension plan-the SEP as it’s commonly called is a great vehicle to offset income that is not of the W2 type, think consulting income.
The Spousal “Qualified IRA” is another handy tool to use if one of the spouses does not have any form of a retirement plan.
The HSA. One of the great parts of the HSA is you only need a high-deductible health insurance plan
Estate and Gift Planning Update – Annual Gifting Amount – Estate Tax Update
Annual Gift amount upped to $16k per person
Estate Tax Stands at $12.06 million per person or $22.12 million per couple
“Last year certainly garnered many headlines of possible changes in much of the estate tax laws. In all fairness we fielded many questions and thankfully once again stuck to our mantra of until it is law, one should be very careful at making preemptive adjustments. There certainly can be changes in the future, but again short of knee jerk reactions, we tend to like for law mandates to be made for reaction, rather than rumors. “
Financial Planning/Retirement Planning Trick for those Early in the Workforce – Roth contribution for young working
Helping a new worker contribute to a Roth and an early age to jumpstart a retirement program…
From the Article…
“Most likely if a young worker is making a very nominal amount, and possibly still living at home, they will not have the cash flow to contribute to any type of retirement plan. But if someway somehow they can make a Roth contribution at least up to their earnings at a very young age the long term positive consequences of this can obviously be fantastic.”
“If a 17 year old was somehow able to get $6000 in a Roth (one time!) and earn 8% a year at age 66 he/she would have about $191,000. If that same 17 year old were somehow able to get $6000 a year until he or she was 23, (five years), and had the same 8% compounding until he or she was 66 there would be a nest egg of just under $1,000,000. That $1,000,000 would not be subject under current tax laws, to mandatory required minimum distributions (RMS;s) nor again under current tax laws would it be taxable income upon distribution.”
We hope you enjoy … talk to you in the summer!
