As you approach retirement age, you may start to worry about how much of your hard-earned wealth will go toward paying taxes. Fortunately, there are proactive strategies you can implement to minimize the amount of taxes you owe over time and protect your wealth from erosion. This is where tax management comes in.
Tax management is the process of strategically managing your finances each and every year to minimize your tax liability. It goes beyond tax preparation, which is simply completing paperwork to ensure compliance with tax laws. Instead, tax management starts with careful tax planning, expert guidance, and smart investments to minimize the amount of taxes you owe.
Tax planning strategies involve a range of tactics, including deferring income, accelerating deductions, and leveraging capital gains assets. It also includes making use of tax deferral strategies such as IRAs and 401(k)s and tax advantaged ones such as Roth IRAs, HSA accounts and 529 plans. The goal is to minimize your taxable income, maximize your deductions, and make the most of all the available tax breaks. A key aspect of tax planning is taking a long-term view.
Rather than focusing solely on reducing your tax bill in a given year, tax planning looks at your finances holistically and seeks to minimize your taxes over a long period of time, such as several decades. Planning understands that tax decisions made over the next five years may well impact your tax experience over the next 15 or 20 years. This may involve making a handful of strategic decisions.
While tax planning is a static snapshot as of today, Tax management goes one step further. It starts with planning, and then adds a proactive approach with possible adjustments each and every year as the tax codes change and life unfolds. We all recognize that not all years go financially as planned. Something over time is bound to change.
An important component of tax management is working with an experienced tax advisor. A knowledgeable advisor will help you navigate the complex tax landscape, identify opportunities for tax savings, and assist you in making smart choices each and every year. These choices will take into account your unique financial situation and goals.
