BRIGHTON, MI – 6/11/2016 — You’ve likely heard the adage, “It’s not what you earn, it’s what you keep.”

With higher capital gain taxes and the 3.8 percent Medicare investment income surtax, the importance of tax-efficient income strategies immediately becomes clear, especially when coupled with increasingly worrisome federal ledger issues. Consider that in September 2008, the national debt stood at $10.6 trillion. Today, it rings in at over $18 trillion, an exponential leap in barely eight years.
