Good morning.

If you want more people to open your newsletter about smart year-end tax moves, try using the subject line Free Beer. 🍻

Of course, the obvious question is, what does free beer have to do with paying taxes? 🧐

In 1982, the IRS took Edward Sullivan to court after he claimed a tax deduction for his free beer giveaway to patrons of his Oklahoma gas station.

The judge decided the deduction was legit and left the IRS high and dry.

We’re not suggesting you try and deduct the cost of your beer this year. But in this week’s newsletter, you just might learn how to save more than enough on your taxes to cover the cost of your next bar tab.

Looking for a little help from a friend who knows a thing or two about your uncle (Sam)?

Get to know financial advisors and coaches on Wealthtender knowledgeable about tax… so you can relax.

What is a Personal Financial Specialist (CPA / PFS)?

Essentially, a PFS is a CPA with training and work experience in the financial planning industry. They have the expertise it takes to help clients holistically with a number of financial matters including retirement, investments, risk management, estate planning, and taxes. 

Let’s take a closer look at what this financial certification is, how you may benefit from working with a PFS, and we’ll get to know PFS designation holders featured on Wealthtender.
