Now and then I hear from a client who suspects that an IRS imposter is targeting them with a fraudulent phone call or email. According to the IRS, these calls are becoming more frequent and are increasingly aided by robocall technology. My first response is always the same: Don’t respond.
I tell all my tax preparation clients that the true key to building wealth lies in building assets. A savings account in a bank is not the answer. Bank accounts have low interest rates, so you will barely make any money. However, a solid investment strategy and smart tax planning will allow your money to work for you.
I look at the millennial generation and see incredible opportunities for financial planning and wealth building. There's something about the spirit of this young generation. Many are exploring the possibility of early retirement and are eager to reach financial independence in order to do so. My advice is always to focus on acquiring assets.
