Income Tax Planning
When providing income tax planning services, we strive to identify strategies to reduce your income tax liabilities. In structuring your investment portfolio, one of our goals is to minimize the income taxes you will pay on your investment income in the long term.
Our professional staff is familiar with a variety of different tax-advantaged investment vehicles.
Although our tax professionals prepare personal, trust, and business income tax returns, many of our clients have an established relationship with a CPA outside of Alexander Randolph. Recognizing that such relationships are often important to clients, we are happy to provide assistance to your CPA by collecting data to ensure that your personal income tax return is complete and accurate.
With a top federal estate tax rate of 40%, developing and implementing a comprehensive estate plan can be one of the most value-added services we provide. We are aware of both the sensitive nature and the importance of addressing our clients’ estate planning needs.
Estate Planning Objectives

- Minimize costly federal and state estate and inheritance taxes as well as probate and estate administration costs.
Our wealth management professionals are experienced with a variety of different trust arrangements and often coordinate family gifting programs. We also have the expertise to address a family’s multi-generational estate planning needs through the use of various generation skipping measures.
The senior members of a family can often provide for the establishment of certain trust arrangements that will reduce estate taxes and probate expenses at their children’s demise and provide for the maximum transfer of family wealth to future generations. Many trust arrangements can also be structured to help protect a family inheritance from lawsuits, creditors, and divorce proceedings.
Personal Risk Management – Insurance
Planning for life’s tragedies is essential for financial security. Our professional staff can help you determine the amount of life and disability insurance coverage you need and the most cost effective type of coverage.
