Need to reduce taxes?
Business owners with passive income from real estate or other investment classes may now be faced with higher overall taxes because of the introduction of the passive income rules that affect the small business tax rate.
There is a way to reduce taxes and safeguard wealth. Consider a corporately-owned participating whole life insurance plan. It is a flexible, dividend-paying policy that delivers living benefits. The net result is that you will lower the passive income inside the corporation, reducing tax and safeguarding wealth.
