If you’re looking for a way to separate yourself from other advisors, tax planning just might be the answer.
Most people are focused on tax preparation each year but providing tax planning as part of an overall approach to serving clients, you’ll be able to provide additional value to each person you work with. The holdup for people is not having a comprehensive understanding of tax code. But that’s where a CPA comes in. The role an advisor plays works in conjunction with a CPA and together they can really benefit a client.
That’s why we asked Steven Jarvis, CPA, MBA, to come on the podcast and share the way he helps bring tax professionals and financial advisors together to reduce one of the largest expenses in retirement, which is taxes.
He’s an expert in working with advisors and showing them how to implement tax planning in your business and how explain how it can strengthen your relationship with clients.
Throughout the show, he’ll walk you through the difficulties in tax planning, what kind of checklist you need, and how advisors will benefit from this service.
So as you go through the episode today, keep an ear out for some of these topics that we cover:
