Retirement Plans for 2018.

Maybe the new year is your big year for finally enjoying the fruits of your labor.  The new year is just weeks away and retirement may be on your mind.  It’s one thing to look forward to enjoying travel leisure.  It is another thing entirely to be financially able to do all of that unless you have stowed away millions for this exciting time of your life.

While you were accumulating a lifetime of wealth taxes were always in the back of your mind.  That WILL NOT change during retirement!  Taxes obviously must be paid on distributions from qualified retirement plans.  These plans include 401K’s, IRA’s, etc.  It takes careful planning to manage excess taxation when your income ceases.

There is even something called “discounted retirement”.  You might want to talk to a professional to get more information on this option.  Las Vegas area financial retirement expert Mike Mathews may be the answer to all of your retirement planning questions.  Why not make an appointment this fall at his beautiful Regatta Drive office by calling (702) 240-5237?

It’s the Fourth Quarter and the Clock is Ticking.

It sounds like a prelude to a story about the upcoming NBA season doesn’t it?  This headline, however refers to the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2017.  What does it mean to you?  If you are a business owner it means a great deal because it is time to prepare for a potential year-end audit.  Yikes!!!

Here are some steps to follow –

1.  Put a to-do list together NOW.
2.  Gather all of your correct bank information.
3.  Make sure that your trial balance and your accountants match up.
4.  Ask auditors for a list of “test” questions that may help you in the preparation process.

It is essential that you do not undertake this process alone.  Unless you are a licensed CPA you need a professional who has guided business owners through hundreds of audits.  Your answer may well be Las Vegas CPA Mike Mathews.  His knowledge is vital at a time like this and you will enjoy meeting with him at his Regatta Drive location in the Northwest.  Don’t wait until the last minute.  Call Mike Mathews today at (702) 240-5237.
