Tax Strategies Individuals increasingly face decisions every day that carry important tax implications to their net-worth. From tax deferral strategies to more basic compensation and tax reduction strategies, we can help minimize your tax risk and exposure, as well as help identify ways to reduce your overall tax responsibilities. Pension Plans and Executive Compensation We set-up and review qualified and non-qualified pension plans. Perhaps the least understood aspect of executive compensation is non-qualified retirement planning. Many are not aware non-qualified plans offer owners and top executives tax-favored savings opportunities without requiring matching funds for employees as in a 401k strategy. Our extensive background in business planning and our in house tax advisors and legal advisors make non-qualified planning a specialty area for the firm.*Securities and Investment advisory services offered through Voya Financial Advisors, Member SIPC** Neither Voya Financial Advisors nor its representatives offer tax or legal advice.
