I’d like to tell you a story about a wealthy man. This man was known far and wide for throwing extravagant parties at his home.
During one party in particular,this man led all the young,single men to his swimming pool. In the pool,the young men could see several sharks of various breeds.
“Any young man who dares to dive into this pool and swim to the other side may be granted one of two things,my only daughter’s hand in marriage or half of everything I own.” The man said to the young men.
Thinking no man would be foolish enough to try,he turned back toward the party. To his amazement,he heard a splash as he was walking away. He turned,startled,to see someone swimming across the pool as quickly as he could,the sharks attacking him from every angle.
Finally the young man,exhausted and bleeding,pulled himself from the pool and faced the awestruck man.
“I didn’t think anyone would dare do that,but I’m a man of my word. You may have my daughter’s hand in marriage or half of my estate.”
“Sir,” the young man replied,“I’m not ready to get married yet and I don’t want your money. I just want to know who pushed me in the pool!”
Today,in our economy,we also face sharks like taxes. The government has offered us several promising benefits like the new health plan and stimulus package. To get these benefits,though,we must swim through the tax sharks,which will eat away a great percentage of our income.
Our economy is turning into a dangerous shark pool but take comfort. Financial advisors,such as myself,act as dolphins which will ward off the tax sharks. We are aware of tax laws and can help you save more on your taxes. Don’t let the tax sharks eat up all your assets.
