Other Services Tax PlanningIn our opinion, the simplest and most conservative way to improve your returns or increase your income is to reduce your taxes. By not investing enough energy into a tax allocation strategy, your hard-earned retirement savings could be depleted by taxes alone. While many financial advisors may ignore this part of financial planning, we at Hess Segal Group do not take short cuts. We believe that applying prudent and effective tax allocation strategies are a key part of your overall financial plan.You have three choicesPay taxes nowPay taxes laterPay taxes neverThe right tax diversification strategy will help you determine the appropriate mix of taxable, tax deferred and potentially tax-free investment options to help maximize your long-term profitability, help minimize risk and balance liquidity. It also provides ways to help stretch your retirement assets both for your income today and for your beneficiary's, tomorrow.*Long-term CareFirst and foremost, long-term care insurance is about protecting you, your income and your dignity.
