Year-end tax pitfalls

Amey Stone

I just listened in on a year-end tax planning conference call featuring three financial planners that are part of Zero Alpha Group. They identified these four common pitfalls of investors this time of year:

- Blowing your bonus

- Giving gifts (to charities or heirs) without an eye to cutting your taxes

- Cluelessness on the alternative minimum tax (AMT)

- “Playing Santa Claus” at the expense of your retirement plan

For more details on the mistakes, you can read the full press release and even listen to a replay of the conference by following this link: "Avoid the four biggest pitfalls of year-end tax/financial planning."
