Are you confident you’re taking advantage of every tax break you deserve?
The world is full of tax preparers who can put the “right” numbers in the right boxes on the right forms by the right deadlines. But what are they doing to make sure you get all the breaks you deserve? When was the last time your tax preparer came to you and said “here’s an idea I think will save you money?”
If they haven’t then maybe the tax planning professionals at Clear View Wealth Advisors can help.
CPAs and other qualified accountants play an important role in serving their clients. However, it is important to understand that most of these professionals may not be trained tax-planning specialists. Their focus is to take what you have already done and filter that information through the tax laws required to create a valid tax return. This is great accounting, but it is not tax planning. We, however, focus on those areas of tax law that provide solutions to build and preserve your wealth. You are best protected and better served when you get tax planning advice by melding our expertise with that of your accountant’s.

Case in Point
A 64 year-old real estate investor was troubled about his portfolio that included a rental property in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The mulit-family property was valued at over $600,000. He wanted to sell the property, replace the income provided by his rental and reduce his income taxes. He was stunned to learn that, according to his lawyer and a tax preparer, he would be obligated to pay nearly $200,000 in capital gains taxes if the property was sold and that little, if anything, could be done to lower his income taxes.
Discouraged, he reached out for a second opinion and, after our discussing the situation with him, we did a Pre-Sale Tax & Income Analysis of the property. Our diagnosis reported a way to structure the sale through an IRS-sanctioned method that would result in no capital gains taxes due when the property was sold and provide a way to invest more money now to replace his income from the sold property. We also discovered other tax-saving opportunities for him with which his lawyer and most CPAs were unfamiliar.
Our recommendations for the sale of investment property or a business will typically result in clients paying no capital gains taxes now while enjoying more assets to invest and income than they may have had previously.
Requesting Clear View to do a flat-fee, no-obligation analysis of your property and a Second Opinion Tax Review of your tax returns simply makes good business sense and may result in you gaining significant tax benefit.
Take to heart what author F.J. Raymond once quipped:
“Next to being shot at and missed, nothing is really quite as satisfying as an income tax refund.”
