In the media world getting a big check is nice, but keeping more of it is awesome! Smart tax planning ensures that you have more dollars to spend or save towards your financial goals. With Media Wealth's Tax Counsel service,* we are available to help answer your questions and provide tailored solutions.
Understanding the tax treatment of different account types and investments is important. Retirement accounts offer tax deferral and are best suited to hold investments with high rates of return or non-qualified dividends. Taxable brokerage accounts are best for capital gain eligible stocks and tax-free municipal bonds. Our portfolios are designed to maximize after-tax returns by optimizing for asset location.
Our portfolios use ETFs to give you more control over the timing of your tax liabilities. Unlike traditional mutual funds which distribute capital gains (when other investors sell), ETFs allow you to defer capital gains and compound your returns. We also offer tax-free income by investing in municipal bonds.
Donating highly appreciated investments to a Donor Advised Fund provides a charitable income tax deduction and allows you to avoid capital gains tax on the sale of the investment.
TAX LOSS HARVESTING
Our investment strategy can generate tax credits during market declines to help reduce your tax liabilities.

Contributing pre-tax dollars to a retirement account allows you to compound your wealth at a higher rate and helps lower your tax bill. We can also consider contributing after-tax dollars to a Roth account for tax-free growth.
