Introduction to Taxes
Share |
Ben Franklin wrote, "in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes".  This is as true today as it was in 1789 when he wrote it.

Taxes get between you and your money in a very real way.  Navigating the tax landscape effectively means greater wealth and financial security.  Wealthy people know this...  that is why they pay financial advisors, accountants and attorneys.

What kind of taxes do you pay? 
  • Social Security and Medicare Taxes
  • Federal Income Taxes
  • State and Local Income Taxes
  • Capital Gains Taxes
  • Sales Taxes
  • Property Taxes
  • Personal Property Taxes
  • Gasoline Taxes
  • Sin Taxes
  • Cell Phone Use Taxes
  • Tolls
  • Fees (Vehicle Registration, Driver's License Renewals) etc.
  • Estate Taxes (only about 2% of estates pay Federal Estate Taxes)
  • Inheritance Taxes
  • Gift Taxes
  • Lottery (here is one you actually CHOOSE to pay!)
Conclusion:  less taxes equals more wealth for you.
