November 29, 2023

The clock is ticking, days are getting shorter and cooler, and it is hard to believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. But from a financial perspective, we have less than two months to do tax planning, so what should you be thinking about?

In this episode, Peter Raskin discusses the importance of year-round tax planning. He highlights five key considerations: understanding one's tax bracket, Roth conversions, charitable giving, gifting strategies, and realizing capital gains and losses. Peter emphasizes the benefits of Roth IRAs and the impact of charitable gifts on communities. He also explains the tax implications of holding mutual funds and the strategy of realizing capital gains and losses.

  • The importance of working with a tax advisor throughout the tax planning process
  • Advantages of Roth conversions and avoiding higher tax brackets
