Are Your Frustrated With The Amount of Income Taxes You Pay Each Year? Do You Need a Better Way To Reduce Your Taxes? Are You Even Aware of Legal Tax Reduction Strategies?

Philadelphia, Pa.- Robert was just plain angry. “I can’t believe I’m getting nailed this bad. I seem to be supporting the 17 trillion dollar national debt all by myself!” Once again, he had to write a big check with his tax return. Once again he had been told by his accountant that, “There is nothing you can do about it. Somehow Robert knew his accountant was working for the IRS. “He must be. Why else would he be so satisfied to roll-over and play dead for the government.” “I need personal tax advice”, he thought to himself “My accountant has never mentioned any tax reduction strategies that I could use!”

As Robert finished writing his check to the IRS, he was staring at his laptop and was reading a news feed when he saw the headline, “State of the Union Address Declares Tax War on Business Owners and Individuals! President Obama Prepares New Income Tax Package To Send To Congress! Business-Owners and Individuals Are in Washington’s Crosshairs!”

Robert’s blood pressure spiked! The article ended by saying while new taxes were inevitable, there were just as many new tax reduction strategies in the proposed legislation. And that most small businesses & individuals never use even a small percentage of the secrets the IRS preferred people didn’t know. “If business-owners and individuals knew how many ways there are to reduce your taxes, they wouldn’t be complaining so loudly!”, the article ended.

Robert had enough. “I’m going to learn how to fight back legally!” He knew that starting tomorrow, he was going to stop complaining and take action. He was going to learn, “The Top Ten Tax Mistakes Individuals and Business-Owners Make”, by getting a free report at You too, should learn all the tax reduction strategies that are available that your current accountant or tax advisor is not telling you about, and congress hopes you never learn!

2015 Tax Outlook: More Gridlock & Partisanship

2015 Tax Outlook: More Gridlock & Partisanship
( tax reduction strategies will be even more critical to reduce your income taxes)
You may remember that 2013 was a big year for taxes. Congress passed legislation averting the so-called “fiscal cliff,” and many of the “Obamacare” changes took effect. While few of us who watched the process would consider it Washington’s finest hour, we at least had answers to many of the questions that had made proactive planning more difficult over the past few years.

What a difference a year makes! 2014 started off with partisan bickering, and ended with even more gridlock. It took Congress until December 16 to pass “tax extender” legislation, reinstating tax breaks that expired all the way back on January 1. (Those same provisions expire on January 1, 2015 — meaning Congress will have to do it all over again next year!) About the only thing they could actually agree on was cutting the IRS budget back to pre-2009 levels, which will only make the taxation bureaucracy even harder to navigate. Let’s not mention the complexity of the “Affordable Care Act”, and the “Individual Mandate” coming to a neighborhood near you!

President Obama and Congressional leaders have said that corporate tax reform is “on the table” for the final two years of the current administration. However, amid the continuing partisan wrangling over the budget, and the approaching 2016 election, there appears to be little appetite on Capitol Hill for significant changes to the personal tax rules. So up to date personal tax advice is critical

Ordinarily, we would take this occasion to walk you through the upcoming year’s most promising new opportunities to manage your tax bill. This year, thanks to gridlock and Washington’s propensity to make a crisis out of everything, there just isn’t enough “new” to discuss. But we’ll be sure to keep you informed of any legislative changes that do make it out of Washington, as well as new regulations or court decisions that could create tax savings.

At the same time, we ask that you sign up for our Two Minute Tax Reduction Strategies Video Newsletter to keep you informed of changes that might affect your taxes. As a bonus you will receive two free reports. Ten Tax Reduction Mistakes Business Owners Make and Ten Tax Reduction Mistakes Individuals make.

This Year, Put the IRS (and tax reduction strategies) in Your New Year’s Resolutions!

This Year, Put the IRS (and tax reduction strategies) in Your New Year’s Resolutions!

January 1 is almost here, and for millions of Americans, that means resolving to lose weight, quit smoking, drink less, volunteer more, or travel to new and exciting destinations. Seeking public support, we post our resolutions on Facebook and other social media, and even make bets with our friends over who will succeed more magnificently.

The sad reality is that most New Years’ resolutions fall woefully short. By Groundhog Day, we’re back in our bad old habits. Those gyms and fitness clubs that were full in January? By February, they’re empty. Those pantries that are full of healthy vegetables now? By Valentine’s Day they’ll be packed full with “foods” ending in “-itos”!

So, this year, why not make a resolution you’ll want to keep? Why not resolve to stop wasting money on taxes you don’t have to pay! Personal tax advice could be just what you need.

The good news is, you can do this without starving yourself, spending hours on a treadmill, or giving up your favorite vice. You just need a plan. Tax planning is the key to paying the legal minimum, especially with today’s higher rates. And a good tax plan will improve your financial fitness for next year and all the years to come.

Call me today at 610-945-1954 for your free Tax Analysis. We’ll find the mistakes and missed opportunities that may be costing you thousands today, and show you how “New Years” tax planning can save thousands more tomorrow. We guarantee you’ll appreciate the fresh start with your taxes charity. So call now to schedule your Analysis!

How Can You Convert an IRA to a Roth IRA and Eliminate or Reduce The Tax Consequences?

How Can You Convert an IRA to a Roth IRA and Eliminate or Reduce The Tax Consequences?

Mike & Mary Biden, ages 75 and 73, needed personal tax advice. They currently have over $400,000 in various bank accounts earning less than 1.5%. They also have a number of IRA’s totaling $300,000. They would like to reduce or eliminate their RMD’s, as they currently have enough income from social security and their pensions to enable them to live comfortably. Their long‐term care needs have been addressed. Their unwanted RMD’s are pushing them into a higher tax bracket, and they are also concerned that their heirs would pay substantial taxes should they inherit the IRA’s.

The Tax Reduction Network suggested the following strategy as a way to support their favorite charitable work, have a future income, and create a way to re-characterize their qualified money without substantial tax consequences..

Here’s how it worked:

1. Mike & Mary funded a TRN Strategy, $200,000 of non‐qualified assets that were earning very low rates.
2. The TRN Strategy issued a Deferred Income program that will payout to them, or to their heirs beginning in 10 years (they may turn on income sooner if they need to) for 20 years.
3. Mike & Mary received an immediate income tax deduction of $94,137.
4. The Biden’s recommended that their church and their local homeless shelter receive immediate charitable grants as a result of their completed TRN Strategy.
5. The Roth conversion was elected on some of their IRA’s, utilizing the tax deduction to
off-set what would otherwise have been a taxable event.

Total Value of Assets transferred $200,000
Tax Deduction Created $ 94,137
Tax Savings @ 25% $ 23,534
Annual Income (10 yr. deferral /20 yr. payout) $ 14,283
Potential Benefit (payout plus tax savings) $ 309,194
Amount of Charitable Recommendation $ 6,000

This is one just one way of reducing taxable income.

IRS Reveals How High Income Earners Pay No Tax!

IRS Reveals How “High Income Earners Pay No Tax”

The IRS “Statictics of Income” division has just released the Spring SOI Bulletin. While we don’t expect it to challenge the latest Tom Clancy thriller on the best seller list, the Bulletin actually appeals to an even bigger audience- anyone who wants to learn, the secrets of reducing taxable income.

The big news in this issue was this: in 2007 4,535,623 Americans reported “ adjusted gross incomes “ of more than $200,000 or more. 10,456 of them paid zero federal income tax! I mean nothing, zip, zilch, nada!!!

Paying no tax is hardly remarkable. According to the Washington-based Tax Policy Center, this year 47% of Americans will pay no federal income tax. That’s because their income is so low, or because they qualify for enough exemptions, deductions, and credits to eliminate any liability. But making $200,000 and paying no tax-now, that’s an accomplishment. How did they do it? Where did they get the personal tax advice?

According to the IRS, here are the items that produced the largest effects on high income returns:

• Interest Paid (including mortgage and investment interest)

• Taxes Paid

• Charitable Contributions

• Casualty and theft Loses

• Partnership and “S Corporation” loses

• Plus five proprietary tax reduction strategies that the IRS hopes you never learn!

You probably don’t want to count on “casualty and theft losses” as a way of reducing taxable income. But you can count on one thing. Very few of those 10,456 lucky winners sat down to file their taxes and discovered their zero tax bill by surprise. Almost all of them did it through careful tax reduction planning.

Do we sound like a broken record with the “P” word. Sorry, that’s too bad. Tax planning is really the key to minimizing your taxes. So while we can’t promise tax planning will eliminate your tax bill entirely, we can tell you it gives you your opportunity to keep more of what you earn.

Are your friends , family, or colleagues grumbling about unhappy April 15th surprises/ You can be a hero by helping them avoid those surprises. Let them know that we can help, with the right tax plan and the right concepts and strategies for them. And if you don’t have a tax plan of your own…well, you know where to find us!

What is year-end tax planning? or How do I reduce taxable income?

As the end of the tax year approaches, you can probably get a rough idea of how much you’ll owe in taxes. To lower your tax bite, it is wise to take certain steps at year-end. Numerous strategies exist to help you, including reviewing professionally developed year-end tax checklists, performing a marginal tax rate analysis to ensure that you won’t be pushed into a higher tax bracket unnecessarily, and postponing income and accelerating deductions (or vice versa).

Year-end tax planning and also investment decision-making may sometimes result in substantial tax savings. Year-end tax planning primarily concerns the timing and the method by which you report your income and claim your deductions and credits. The basic strategy for year-end planning is to time your recognition of income so that it will be taxed at a lower rate, and to time your deductible expenses so that they may be claimed in tax years when you are in a higher tax bracket. In a nutshell, you should try to do the following:

  • Recognize income when your tax bracket is lower
  • Pay deductible expenses when your tax bracket is higher
  • Postpone the payment of tax whenever possible

Can checklists help you? Yes they can, but “How Do I Reduce My Taxes?”

Tax planners develop checklists to guide taxpayers toward year-end strategies that might help to reduce their taxes. These checklists offer several suggestions and are arranged in categories, such as “Retirement Planning Checklist.” The checklists trigger tax-savings ideas that may not have occurred to you. At the Tax Reduction Network, we provide these checklists during our clients’ annual reviews. Our clients have saved thousands of dollars by not overpaying their income taxes year after year! So you can show me how to reduce tax liability!

For instance, one suggestion may be to shift income at the year’s end to family members who are in lower tax brackets to minimize your overall taxes. Another suggestion might be for a married person to calculate his or her taxes two ways, using both married filing jointly status and married filing separately status, in order to minimize income tax liability.

Three Advantages of Incorporation

Incorporation is the next step in the evolution of your business. The laws for incorporation vary from state to state, but incorporating is definitely something to consider to provide protections for you and your business.

1. Liability. This is the primary issue because in a sole proprietorship there’s no safety net between your client and his or her business. If the business can’t pay its bills, creditors will go after him or her personally to make up the difference. If the business purchases a vehicle, your client purchases that vehicle. If the business gets sued, so does your client. If employees run into trouble on the job, so does your client. Your client and his or her business are inseparable. Even though there’s no cost in choosing the route of sole proprietorship, there’s no protection either.

2. Taxes. With every paycheck comes the hard-hitting reality of losing 6.2 percent of the first $106,800 of gross salary on Social Security and an additional 1.45 percent for Medicare (except Medicare contains no cap – you pay on every dime you make.) But what your client may not know is that employers are required to match those amounts, along with any state payroll tax amounts. So that’s a minimum of 15.3 percent right off the top of your client’s income. The right incorporated business structure minimizes the brunt and avoids payroll taxes on a good chunk of that income.

3. Audit Risk. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cites in its own stats that sole proprietorships and general partnerships have a 1 in 7 chance of being audited. The IRS cites 1 in 50 or higher for incorporated businesses. The message here is that the more casually a business is run, the more likely it is to have some recordkeeping errors.
