Shift Income To Lower Your Taxes

To mitigate your tax burden, it’s perfectly legal to transfer money to other people. The key is doing it correctly — and within international, federal, and state guidelines. That’s what we do. Gordon Law develops tailored tax positions for businesses of all sizes, investors in all stages, in addition to individuals and families in all tax brackets.

Shift Expenses To Lower Your Taxes

Tax calculations consider how much money you spend and what on. You can write off certain purchases. A tax law attorney knows all the obscure-but-compliant provisions that both businesses and individuals can leverage to keep more money in their pockets.

Tax Credit Maximization To Lower Your Taxes

Most people don’t take advantage of tax credits because they’re unaware of what’s available. For example, did you know about the American Opportunity Tax Credit, various foreign tax credits, conservation easements, or the Earned Income Tax Credit? There are dozens. This year, we’ll help you maximize every last one that applies to your situation.

Tax Exempt and Tax Deferred Income To Lower Your Taxes

Not all income is taxable, and tax on certain income can be deferred to a later date. We’ll review your expenses, spending habits, and, if applicable, investment portfolio to see where things can be shifted, allowing you to hold on to the maximum amount while remaining compliant.

Specific things, like making an extra mortgage payment and deferring your bonus, can also prove beneficial in minimizing your tax liability.

Investment Maximization To Lower Your Taxes

Many types of investments aren’t taxed and serve as super savings vehicles. We’ll look at your income and determine if you can stash money in a compliant opportunity, thereby reducing taxable income. This is not an option for just the rich and famous. Many clients are surprised to learn that they, too, can take advantage of several “investment” deductions.
