Personal taxes are more than
taking a bunch of deductions.

The tax-saving methods available today are more numerous than ever before. Strategies centered on investments, children, education and retirement can significantly reduce personal income tax liability. But often what works for one individual may not work for another. At BFMM, we don’t make assumptions. We look at the total picture — business assets, investment funds and personal situation. Whether a client is starting a family or preparing for college, venturing into a new business or nearing retirement, our approach centers on their unique needs. We work with our clients to find the most viable tax strategies to reduce tax liabilities and grow assets.

Our Personal Tax Expertise Includes:

Both a client and his/her favored charity can benefit greatly through savvy charitable giving. Our tax professionals help develop the most advantageous plan, whether it's through timing of contributions or the establishment of a charitable trust.

Education Planning

The cost of higher education is climbing at a record pace. Fortunately, many savings programs can help with future costs. Look to BFMM for tax-advantaged strategies to make education plans a reality.

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning vehicles can provide excellent opportunities to lower tax burdens. BFMM's tax professionals analyze a client’s current situation to help reduce taxes through deductible contributions and tax-deferred growth.
