Course Summary:

It’s not just what you make, it’s what you keep. And what you save. But this tax and retirement planning gets complicated! You’re a dentist, not an accountant! It makes your head hurt just thinking about it. And when you try to dig into it, it makes your head spin. This means you are potentially leaving tens of thousands of dollars on the table just to avoid uncomfortable feelings in your head!

Luckily, there’s a better way. Your friends at Thomas Doll, CPAs, have simplified tax and retirement planning into five straightforward strategies you should consider implementing in 2020. We’ve minimized the jargon and quantified the impact. In this program, we’ll share our checklist, and illustrate it with case studies and examples. This will be an interactive workshop. Please come prepared to participate and engage fully, for the benefit of all in attendance.

Key Learning Objectives:

Participants will have the opportunity to:
1. Reflect critically on your own tax and retirement planning – based on your experiences in 2019.

2. Compare strategies with peers and experts, to share lessons learned.

3. Learn new strategies to implement in 2020, and plan next steps.
