Post-Tax Time Right Time for Financial Planning

Personal Financial Specialist advises careful attention to investment, retirement, and estate planning amid scheduled tax law changes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - May 11, 2012 - Fort Lauderdale, FL (May 10, 2012) – Your 2011 tax return can be a roadmap to financial planning, giving insight into investment, retirement and estate planning needs.

“Tax returns give us a snapshot of our clients’ total financial picture,” said Ronald Myers, Partner at Associated Investor Services and Associated Financial Consultants. “With W-2s, 1099s and other paperwork handy, it’s an important opportunity to assess where the client is and to make adjustments that can move us closer to their financial goals.”

This year, in particular, the need for financial planning is more urgent. Several federal tax provisions are scheduled to expire at the end of the year or take effect at the beginning of 2013 that could influence financial strategies. The tax rate on capital gains, for instance, is scheduled to rise from 15 percent to 20 percent. Qualified dividends are set to be taxed as ordinary income. And a new 3.8 percent Medicare tax will be applied to the investment income of higher income and higher net-worth individuals. (Source:IRS)

“It’s important to understand how these changes could affect your financial situation and to plan now for appropriate investment, retirement and estate strategies,” Myers added. “Year-end 2012 could be too late.”

Ronald L. Myers, CPA/PFS, CFP® has demonstrated robust knowledge in tax, investment, retirement, estate and insurance planning and is committed to ongoing education. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA) and the Financial Planning Association (FPA). He has been a featured speaker at various events and seminars and has been quoted multiple times in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Kiplinger Magazine, South Florida Sun Sentinel and a variety of industry publications. He also serves on the Financial Planning Association of Greater Fort Lauderdale Board of Directors and is a member of the Ambassador Council of the Pantry of Broward.
