Fight Inflation with Taxes

By:  Michael Allbee, CFP®, Senior Portfolio Manager

Late last year we gave you some tips on how to profit from inflation by investing in Series I savings bonds (I-Bonds).  You can buy up to $10,000 per person per year directly from Treasury Direct. But you can also fight inflation by buying an additional $5,000 in paper I-Bonds with your income-tax refund. You can ask to receive all or part of your refund in paper I bonds by completing part 2 of Form 8888 with your return. But your filing must be error-free to receive the assets.

Tax planning should be part of every individual investor’s financial and retirement plan. There are many strategies available for individuals and business owners, but it requires proper planning throughout the year. If you’d like to learn more about tax planning strategies unique to your personal circumstances, feel free to Talk With Us!
