The United States income tax code has undergone significant changes over the last few years. This course will identify the major changes and examine their impact on a broad range of financial planning strategies, including the purchase of a personal residence and other investment real estate, the financing of education, saving for retirement, estate planning, charitable giving, and minimizing the alternative minimum tax. A few simple steps in each of these areas might save a taxpayer thousands of tax dollars. The course goes beyond introductory financial planning courses to look at more complex tax-savings techniques, just in time for tax season. We will cover details of the SECURE and CARES acts and any new legislation passed into law. By the end of the course, you will have the tools necessary to estimate your tax bill, and you will be able to fold knowledge of the new laws into your personal financial strategy. It’s not how much you make that counts; it’s what you keep!
