Before You Wish 2020 Away, Consider These Planning Strategies

The end of the year is fast approaching, and it’s probably fair to say that everyone is looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020 and hoping for a better 2021. The presidential campaign provided insight into potential tax legislation from both candidates, and although any meaningful tax reform may be off the table absent a Democratic Senate, it is very clear that taxes will have to be increased at some point to pay for the mounting debt that the US has incurred due to the pandemic.

Gold Shines for Investors Looking to Diversify
