2018 Year-End Tax Planning for Individuals
Nearly one year later, tax reform is still making headlines and we continue to learn more about its broad implications. Whether your previous tax filing posture was straightforward or complex, you will be impacted by the myriad of changes to the tax code. Now more than ever, it is imperative to thoughtfully consider year-end tax planning opportunities and ensure you are positioned to be in compliance with the new rules.
2018 year-end tax planning begins with a projection of your estimated income, deductions and tax liabilities for 2018 and 2019. You should review actual amounts from 2017 to assist you with these projections. There may be opportunities to accelerate or defer income or deductions to optimize your total tax liability. This Year-End Tax Planning for Individuals Letter (Tax Letter) is written to help you do just that.
