What is Tax Planning?

Tax planning is considered the organization of finances to minimize tax liability while complying with tax laws and regulations. It often involves analyzing your financial situation, identifying possible tax-saving opportunities, and implementing strategies to optimize your tax position. Effective tax planning helps individuals and businesses maximize their after-tax income, preserve wealth, and achieve financial goals.

Tax Planning Matters We Handle

Call or visit our law office today to discuss any of the following tax planning strategies:

  • Charitable Giving: You can take income tax deductions for money or assets you donate to charity. You can also use charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, or family foundations to avoid capital gains and estate taxes.
  • Assets in Trust: There are different types of trusts that can be used to protect assets and reduce the size of your taxable estate. We can help you determine if your estate plan should include grantor retained annuity trusts (GRATs), irrevocable life insurance trusts (ILITs), education trusts, or special needs trusts.
  • Annual Gifting: You can transfer money or assets to your family members and other loved ones to reduce the total value of your estate. This tax strategy lowers the amount of estate taxes that will be due after you pass away. Annual gifting allows your assets to be transferred to beneficiaries without incurring costly gift and estate taxes.

Satisfied Clients Tell Their Stories

  • "Thank you and God Bless you"

    Thank you for being my Living Trust and other Estate documents attorney. Due to our move and storage of business and personal documents, we had trouble locating & we took a lot longer to respond to your drafts, etc. You were very patient with me and my needing lots of explaining of legal terms and meanings. At my age, I was concerned about getting things done but wanting it all done right. You were very prompt in responding to my questions and I think by time of signing I felt confident we had things just the way we wanted to protect my heirs. Thank you and God Bless you.

  • "Smooth and easy"
    Learning about trusts at the meal was easy and educational. The set down at the office was where the finer points of trusts was explained. That is where and when we decided to make it safe and easy for our heirs. Our final meeting where we signed everything and an explanation of each item was given went smooth and easy. All in all I would say the investment in the trust was worth it.
    Thank you to Crain & Wooley office and staff
