Tax planning should occur throughout the year, but the fall is an excellent time to plan before the end of the year. The need could arise at a variety of times; here are some examples of when tax planning becomes important:
• A change in income from your business or employer
• The vesting or exercise of employer stock options
• Borrowing money for any purpose
• Contributing to or taking funds from any type of retirement plan
• Buying or selling any kind of property (a primary residence, vacation home, rental property, other real estate, stocks and bonds, partnership interests, vehicles in your business, a business or business assets, tax shelter, etc.)
• Adding a retirement plan to your business
• Receiving an inheritance
• Getting married
• Deciding on when to take social security
• Negotiating a divorce agreement
• Saving for education
• Making investments where your participation will be minimal
• Making a large gift to your child or another relative
• Starting a business
• Changing the form of your business to a partnership or corporation
• Incurring business expenses as an employee
• Holding an uncollectible note
• Paying off a loan
If you’ve experienced changes in income, a change in financial situations, or just want to know where things stand and see if you can reduce your tax burden, the fall is an excellent time for tax planning.
