When you think about taxes, what comes to mind? A big line item on your paystub? A bunch of confusing jargon? Let’s break it down!

When you think about taxes, what comes to mind? A big line item on your paystub? A bunch of confusing jargon? An important “thing” that someone else takes care of and you just write the check or cash the refund? During this hour we will breakdown what you need to know about taxes so it’s simple and easy to understand and teach you tax planning strategies you can implement for years to come.

You’ll learn:

– How to understand what tax bracket you are in

– How to read a form 1040

– What tax credits and tax deductions are and why they are important to tax planning

– The difference between the standard deduction and itemizing

– Tax planning strategies that can be used now and in the future

Think of it this way, your tax preparer is looking backwards at what’s already happened. Tax planning is about looking forward and helping you make decisions and adjustments to maximize the dollars staying in your pocket.
