Why use the Tax SuperSheet™?

The tax code is passive in the favor of the IRS. This means that doing nothing will likely increase income taxes. Most of the tax code requires the taxpayer to take action, in most cases before year end.

Don’t expect your tax preparer to develop tax strategies. Tax preparation of Minneapolis, MN looks back in time, planning looks forward. Waiting to determine the tax liability until filing taxes prevents the potential to offset taxes with other strategies. The outcome of tax planning is dependent on all of the factors related to the individual tax return and will be different for each household. It takes time, but can be very rewarding.

Income taxes can be the largest expense during a lifetime. Taxes can be even greater when leaving assets to heirs. It is for this reason that Tax planning should not be left to a guesswork. Let FFP Wealth Management eliminate the guesswork with a financial plan using the Tax SuperSheet™.
