This coming week, we have some interesting new articles for Finance Gourmet to help with frequently asked about and requested personal financial health topics.
First up, as May draws to a close, June marks both the end of the second quarter, and the midpoint of the year. What kinds of things should you be aware of at this point for optimal financial health? We’ll discuss quarterly tax payments, how the markets are looking at the half way point, what things you might want to be thinking of for minimizing your taxes, and more.
Next, we tackle signing up for a 529 plan, step by step. Not long ago, I wrote about how a financial planner can help keep you from getting stuck on your financial planning actions such as setting up a 529 plan. But, when you can find them, a detailed step-by-step guide to setting up financial accounts such as a 529 plan can be just as valuable. We’ll give you a detailed guide on how to open a Colorado 529 plan, including how to fill out all the Colorado 529 plan forms to set up an account.
Then, we’ll look at some of the new IRS numbers that you need to know to effectively develop a tax plan to lower your taxes. How much can you contribute to an IRA in 2014? How much can you contribute to a 401k plan in 2014? Which one is better an IRA, Roth IRA, or 401k account when it comes to your financial situation. We’ll develop a quick and easy guide to give you the retirement planning answers you need.
Plus, we’ll look at any news stories or big events that might affect your financial health and money planning decisions for 2014.
