High net worth individuals who leverage life insurance give themselves access to the cash value of the policies. You can borrow against life insurance accounts or use it to invest. You can also pass along the cash value of a permanent life insurance tax-free through gifting under $15k or irrevocable life insurance trusts.
Health Savings Accounts’ triple-tax benefits make them appealing to high-net-worth investors and others who want to pay for healthcare expenses, save on taxes, and have an additional way to help fund retirement. HSAs should be part of your insurance planning discussions with your financial advisor.
Big news for small business—if you have shares of stock in a company valued at less than $50 million, you might be eligible to exclude over $10 million in taxes when sold. Qualified small business stock, or Section 1202 stock, can save you millions on your personal tax return. If you suspect you have left millions of dollars on the table at tax time, talk to an experienced accountant about using this exclusion next year or pursuing an amendment for a refund. Among our many integrated advisory services, Stableford Tax offers Tax Planning to help evaluate potential exclusions such as this on personal tax returns.
