Good for Tax Alpha

Tax alpha is the measure of how much an investor can add to his or her portfolio by using tax-efficient wealth strategies. In other words, it’s not purely what you can make, but what you end up keeping in the end that matters most.

Great for your Portfolio

We utilize tax planning to uncover opportunities that can help you shelter as many dollars as possible, while investing in the most tax-efficient way possible.

Tax-Efficient Wealth Management

Strategic Tax Planning

Strategic tax planning involves year-end planning as well as identifying and implementing opportunities for lowering your future tax liability throughout the year.   [Learn More]

Location Optimization

The after-tax return of your portfolio can be increased with proper location optimization. This is the strategic positioning of investments in the three account types: taxable, tax-deferred, and tax-free. For example, after-tax returns can be increased by holding income generating investments such as bonds in an IRA and holding appreciating assets such as small cap stocks in a taxable account.  [Learn More]

Tax-Loss Harvesting

Capital losses are good forever until you use them. They offset investment gains to lower, and sometimes eliminate, capital gains tax. We take advantage of market swings to lock in losses while keeping your money 100% invested.  [Learn More]

Capital Gain Avoidance

The federal income tax does not apply to all capital gains. With strategic tax planning you can legally avoid or defer your capital gains tax liability. [Learn More]

Roth Conversions

A Roth conversion is the act of repositioning your IRA or other traditional retirement assets to a Roth IRA. Traditional IRAs are funded with pre-tax dollars, meaning that the initial contribution is tax-deductible. Roth IRAs are funded with after-tax dollars, meaning you pay taxes on the contribution up front, allowing the money to grow tax-free for as long as you have the account. Depending on your personal situation, a Roth IRA might be a tax-smart move to help to lower your overall tax liability.  [Learn More]

Charitable Giving

The way in which you choose to give can have a big impact on your taxes as well as the charity you plan to support. Planning how you’ll donate in advance can help you meet your charitable goals in the most tax-efficient way possible.    [Learn More]
