At the beginning of 2022, you probably set a financial goal and are now looking to confirm that your plan will ‘sure up’ well as we near the end of the year. It is imperative to make the right moves now in order to make the most of your earnings this year. You are likely already investing money and now is a good time to be sure it is invested in the most profitable way for you.
For instance, if you have a 401k…it is offering you a temporary tax offset, no cash flow, and a future tax bill. You may have real estate offering you cash flow…but with no tax compensation. As you think about your top line, deductions, losses, and deploying capital you can’t forget expenses – and taxes are likely your greatest expense. Taxes reduce the efficiency of any financial plan. Right now, you can invest in a more efficient way and still mitigate taxes for THIS year.
When your investment strategy lines up with your tax strategy, your return on investment can increase rapidly. For example, an investment with a 10% return that also offsets income in a 35% tax bracket actually earns you 45% in year one. If you only had a 10% return on investment that does not offset taxes, it takes 4.5 YEARS to reach the same rate of return. This shows how an investment strategy aligned with tax mitigation is the most efficient way to plan.
