Investor Insights: 10 Tax-Smart Strategies for 2015

Investor Insights: 10 Tax-Smart Strategies for 2015
BY STEPHANIE PETROSINI
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Over the past few years, the traditional year-end tax planning season has been fraught with uncertainties caused by a tendency for last-minute decisions on economic policy legislation in Washington. This year, with no significant tax law changes anticipated as of this writing, year-end tax planning should be somewhat easier.

Last year the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA) prevented income tax increases for many taxpayers, although those with higher incomes were not as lucky. Adding to their higher tax burden was a Medicare surtax and a new tax on net investment income. ATRA also made permanent the elevated estate, gift and generation-skipping tax exemptions and indexed them for inflation in subsequent years.

While the changes made by ATRA are “permanent,” they may still be subject to future legislative changes, which can occur in any year. It behooves clients to review their individual situation every year, no matter what the tax environment. In this new era of tax preparedness, this planning guide outlines a number of strategies available to investors. Your Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor or Private Wealth Advisor can work with you and your personal tax and legal advisors to help determine strategies that may be beneficial to you.
