Cash Flow Planning
When it comes to creating income no factor is more important than taxes. Whether it’s determining whether to take a lump sum vs. a stream of income from your pension or determining the proper age to take social security, these decisions are often irrevocable and can have adverse tax consequences if not made properly. We perform all of the necessary analysis to ensure you are making the best decision.
Your tax circumstances change from year to year for a number of different reasons. To understand the most beneficial tax planning strategies for you today, it’s important to understand what your tax picture will look like upon retirement.
