Happy Thanksgiving

Josh Legant is joining the Senter, CPA Happy Thanksgiving to all Senter, CPA, P.C. clients, team, friends, and community.

Since today is Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a few things that, myself and the rest of the Senter CPA team, are thankful for:

2022 Tax Planning

Tax planning is the process of managing your financial plan with the goal of reducing your tax liability, and safeguarding assets at the federal and state level. Most tax planning involves deductions, credits, and current vs. future tax rates. When tax planning, you should be looking for strategic and legal ways to reduce your tax burden now and for years to come. This year is a great year to look at possible Roth Conversions or Loss Harvesting. With the downturn in the market it is an opportunity to convert some or all of a retirement to a Roth account with paying the lowest amount of tax.

Thank you!
