"In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt
What does freedom mean to you? Is it something as simple as relaxing by a
favorite lake or ocean? Or maybe it’s the ability to retire a little early and pursue a passion project or second career that you’ve always wanted to try? Whatever your definition, most of us crave freedom and work hard toward our goals to achieve it. One way to help achieve financial freedom is to understand the recent income tax changes and how they may affect you. I’ve included an IRS Tax Calculator that will help you make sure you have the proper withholdings, which could mean avoiding unpleasant surprises at tax time. And especially for the sports fans, I invite you to learn how winning basketball teams and successful financial portfolios are related. I hope you are enjoying fun and rewarding activities this summer.
Taxpayers Who Usually Itemize Deductions Should Check Their Withholding
Under the new tax laws, fewer people will need to itemize deductions, but if you itemize, consider checking now to see if you’re withholding enough from your paycheck. The IRS Tax Calculator will assess any adjustments that should be completed as soon as possible to avoid overpaying or owing a penalty at tax time.
