Beck, Inc. does not provide tax services.Why Pay More Taxes?After paying income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, and other fees, etc., many clients want to reduce taxes on their investments. In recent years the tax burden has grown - most notably perhaps are the investment surtaxes in the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act. We consider ways to structure portfolios and strategies that avoid these taxes altogether. And we can discuss ways to benefit from lower dividend and capital gains tax rates. In addition, we can utilize lower cost tax-deferred annuities. For each unique client situation, we review all investments and explore alternative structures that may reduce the tax burden.
