Tax-Saving Strategies for Young Professionals at “Beer, Burgers & Managing Your Bucks"

Manchester, CT – March 4, 2014 . . . There’s a big distinction between paying your taxes and planning your taxes – and knowing that difference can slice a good chunk off of what you owe the IRS every April.  

At the next “Beer, Burgers & Managing Your Bucks” on Wednesday, March 12, certified financial planner Ryan Tuttle will show young professionals why being a proactive taxpayer –  someone who incorporates tax strategies into his or her financial decision-making throughout the year and not just at tax time – can pay off big. 

 Among the things he’ll talk about:

 •          How your year-round financial decisions impact your tax bill

•           Strategies (beyond IRAs and 401k’s) that can boost your tax savings

•           How to avoid the most common tax-filing mistakes

•           Specific tax tips relevant to the situations of young adults

Even if you think you have your taxes all figured out, chances are you’ll come away from March’s program with an idea or two for keeping more of your hard-earned money in your own pocket.

The event begins at 5:15 PM (late-comers always welcome) at MCC on Main, 903 Main Street, Manchester.  March’s featured brewery is Manchester’s own Top Shelf Brewing Company.  Sliders are from Corey’s Catsup & Mustard.
