Private Tax & Wealth Management For Select Individuals

 What do you see when you look at your financial picture: a stockbroker here, a financial advisor there, a CPA in one office who refers you to an insurance person or an estate planner in other offices? From any perspective, this is a very confusing picture.

For that matter, do your accountant and your financial advisor talk to each other to discuss what you should sell for tax purposes? How about things like reducing capital gains or taking losses against ordinary income? Do any of the people you entrust with your financial future all get together with you in one room at least once a year—before December 31st—to discuss your upcoming tax preparation and its implications for you and your family’s financial future? If your answer is “No” to these questions, you are not alone.

Achieving Financial Security 

At Platinum Tax & Wealth Management all new clients work with our tax & retirement professionals to compile a confidential financial profile based on income, expenses, individual needs, and goals. We review their previous three years’ tax returns, examine their current lifestyle, and prepare a personal tax plan. Based on this information, we will implement a sound, well-thought-out wealth management strategy to minimize their year-to-year tax liabilities, and provide them the opportunity to maintain their current standard of living throughout their retirement.

Just imagine a complete plan where all your Tax Planning, Investment Planning, Retirement Planning and Estate Planning needs are addressed under one roof.

We call it a holistic wealth management plan. Most responsible people call it common sense. At Platinum Tax & Wealth Management, we encourage our clients to sit down with us during the year—not only at tax time— to examine their income, their sources of income, their fringe benefit plans, their assets, their sources of interest and dividend income, and show them ways to reorganize these areas to take advantage of all the deductions that are available to them—ultimately to lower their overall tax bill.

At Platinum Tax & Wealth Management we look at the whole picture. Everything taxes, investments, retirement, insurance, lending, and estate

At Platinum Tax & Wealth Managementwe look at the whole picture—taxes, investments, retirement, insurance, lending, and estate—which allows clients to see their entire financial picture and to understand how wise decisions will let them keep more of their money, provide them with a healthy and solid financial outlook, and secure their family.
