Experienced Kansas Income Tax Attorneys

A few simple tax planning strategies can help individuals reduce their Kansas income tax liabilities and prepare for retirement. There are three overall methods used to reduce individual's overall income taxes – reducing taxable income, shifting tax liabilities to future years and shifting income to taxpayers in lower income tax brackets.

The less taxable income you earn, the less taxes you pay. By taking advantage of retirement savings tools, maximizing deductions and taking advantage of tax credits, individuals can often reduce their overall taxable income.

Shifting the timing of taxable events to future years with lower projected taxable income can reduce the amount of income tax individuals pay. Selling appreciated assets, converting investments, maximizing charitable deductions and, again, contributing to qualified retirement plans are all methods that shift taxable income to future years.

Northeast Kansas Retirement Planning Lawyers

One of the best ways to reduce your taxable income is to make contributions to qualified retirement plans.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) gives favorable tax treatment to qualified retirement plans. Contributing to a traditional 401(k) or IRA will reduce your taxable income for the current year, and contributions to Roth 401(k)s and Roth IRAs help reduce tax liabilities down the road.

Depending on how much income you earn, your retirement contributions may qualify you for the Savers Credit. Self-employed individuals can reduce their overall tax liabilities by contributing to Keogh plans.

Northeast Kansas Charitable Donation Strategy Lawyers

Charitable donations are great tax savings tools. Not only do they reduce taxpayers' taxable income through charitable deductions, but based on the nature of the property donated, they may result in even larger tax savings to the donor.

There are many factors to consider when developing a charitable giving plan. In order to maximize the tax benefits brought by your charitable donation, the nature of the property and the effects of its contribution must be fully understood. Donations of real estate, publicly listed stock, income-producing property, depreciable property and appreciated properties that produce capital gain all have unique tax implications.
