It seems as if this solution is too good to be true?
We have been asked this by leading tax professionals and while the results of the TaggartGalt solutions appear to be to good to be true, they are supported by both case law and opinions written by leading recognized tax lawyers.
Why aren’t these effective strategies more common?
Our experience tells us that the taxpayer and their advisers may not be aware of these effective strategies. Our planning process works well with existing advisers as we rely on them to implement the customized tax strategies we create.
