"It’s not how much you make that counts; it’s what you keep” is a tried-and-true axiom of financial planning. In this course, we will examine the impact of the tax law (including changes to the tax code this year) 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.

This course covers in greater depth the tax-savings concepts commonly discussed in introductory financial planning courses and looks at more complex tax-savings techniques. We will also provide the most current update on recent efforts to reform our complicated tax code and help you position yourself to take full advantage of these changes.
