As the year end approaches, we wanted to share with you important tax strategies to consider, which may help you save on your taxes–now and in the future.
Watch this video for a quick summary of the year-end tax tips.
Here are the year-end tax planning tips to consider:
1. Potential benefits of converting to a Roth IRA
Unlike a Traditional IRA, a Roth IRA’s contributions and earnings can grow tax-free. With tax rates being at all-time lows, converting to a Roth may be a tax-smart move in the long run.
2. Turn losses into potential tax savings
If you have assets that have lost value and you decide to sell them before 2022, you may be able to use those capital losses to offset taxable capital gains.
3. Rebalance your portfolio for the New Year
