Death and taxes, the two things in life we are told we can never avoid. While passing away is inevitable, taxes at least can be minimized. It is easy to understand why so many people fail to take advantage of all the tax savings opportunities available, especially with the tax laws changing every year. But most people, even those who file simple returns, can benefit from tax planning strategies.
Tax planning should not be seasonal. Tax savings opportunities exist throughout the year and often cannot be put off until December 31st or April 15th. For instance, life-changing events such as job promotions, marriages, births, divorce, death, and fluctuations in the stock market can affect your finances and tax consequences significantly.
