Life Events

Life can throw you a curveball or pleasantly surprise you… it is all about how you handle it.  This section is dedicated to most common life events that have a direct impact on your tax situation.  Each life event shown, if ignored, dismissed as nothing special or procrastinated on, can potentially deprive you from an opportunity to plan for deductions and timing of receipt of income, which may result in a less than optimal tax outcome.  This means paying more tax than you could have.
