Tax Management

The Need for Tax Management

History has shown that taxes can have a significant effect on clients’ efforts to reach their savings goals.

  • $1 invested in stocks in 1926 would have grown to almost $5,400 by 2016, an average annual return of about 10%

  • Add taxes to the equation, and that same dollar would have been worth just over $1,000, an average annual return of 8.0%


Knowing how taxes and the cost of living will impact you by state can help you better prepare and save for retirement.
