Don’t let this happen to you, as year-end planning can save you a significant amount of money. Tax planning is the process of creating a financial plan to maximize your tax return and ensure you pay the lowest taxes possible. The process includes calculating expected quarterly tax payments, creating a plan to avoid penalties, and utilizing any available deductions. Taking the time to create a year-end tax plan benefits taxpayers in the long run.
