Top Individual Tax Planning Strategies

Description:

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) contains provisions that when properly implemented allow the individual taxpayer to reduce his or her tax liability. The SECURE Act changed many of the rules dealing with Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). This program focuses on certain tax strategies that allow the individual taxpayer to reduce his or her tax liability based on the TCJA and IRS notices and regulations issued over the last three years and also discusses individual planning strategies relating to IRAs.

IRA changes that impact individual tax planning

Negotiate or renegotiate separation agreements and divorce decrees in light of the changes in the tax rules governing the deductibility of alimony payments
