In this week’s Hidden Wealth Review, I teach that investors may be in for a future tax surprise. I recently read an article that highlighted the indirect taxes that people are paying on non-IRA accounts. These hidden taxes are causing many people to be taxed to the max.

For example, we’re working with a couple and we’ve been able to save them a lot of tax. Due to the turnover of their portfolio positions in 2018, their capital gains tax bill was $172,000! This was on top of losing about seven percent from their account that year.

This huge tax bill was caused by the short and long-term capital gains created by their fund managers buying and selling stocks in order to bolster their performance tack record. These fund managers have little regard for the tax liability that their actions create for the client.

Our clients believed that their huge tax bill was the result of some unusual market turmoil that happened right at the end of the year. Their thought was that things would be different in the future.

We are headed into what maybe the most contested presidential election many of us will see in our lifetimes. Accordingly, the stock market will become more volatile as the year progresses. If a decidedly anti-wealth, tax-and-spend Democrat is elected, this will stifle the markets even further.

Because of this year’s Trump-inspired market run up and all of the wheeling and dealing by fund managers, many people are going to receive a surprise tax bill at the end of the year. You can avoid this tax bill with proper strategic tax planning.

In addition to this year’s surprise stock market taxes, there may be other tax situations you are facing. If you don’t have a strategic tax plan but you still want to understand the impact of these taxes, then you need to schedule a meeting with us. If you’re curious to know what your retirement tax road looks like, compared to the tax road you could be traveling, we can help!
