Solutions for reducing Capital Gains Taxes

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Selling my business is the biggest pay day of my life!  I have been paying income taxes all my life and now I am faced with a $2M tax bill when I sell my business?!?!?!?  NO WAY!?!?!?!”

 

You might be facing the same situation.  I had just started working with “Barry” and learned that he had a written offer to purchase his business (great news) and was facing a huge tax bill if the deal closed (awful news).  I commented that it might be a better deal for him if this sale fell apart.  As it turned out, it did fall apart and we were able to complete a comprehensive estate plan involving a new entity, promissory note, gifts and 2 new trusts that eliminated this tax bill and his estate tax.  A tax savings of more than $7,000,000!  

 

Within a year another buyer came along and purchased the business for the same price as the previous offer.

 

There are 2 tax systems, one for the informed and one for the uninformed.  May we help you?
