Expert Retirement and Financial Advisor Mark Kinney Highlights the Importance of Reviewing Your Finances Annually
Seasoned retirement and financial strategist, Mark Kinney, discusses financial situations that should be considered before the new year.
Lee, Massachusetts—December 22, 2016—Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney,CFP®, published a new blog entitled, “Give Yourself a Year-End Financial Checkup.” In the blog, he discusses why December is a good time to review estate plans and other financial issues.
Mark writes, “Have you maxed out contributions to your 401(K) or IRA? If you have extra income, consider placing it in a retirement account to take advantage of their tax-deferred status. This is especially true if you’re one of the lucky ones who receives a year-end bonus. If the added income bumps you up to a higher tax bracket, you might want to forgo the new television and place the funds in your retirement account instead.”
According to Mark, “If you’ve resolved to give your finances a check-up, now is a good time to do it. But you don’t have to do it alone. Seek out expert guidance from professionals in the tax, estate planning, and wealth management fields to help you decide if you’re on the right course for the future.”
