Even with an extra two days added onto the traditional tax deadline of April 15th (because the 15th is Sunday and the 16th is a holiday in the District of Columbia), many people scrambled at the last-minute to file their taxes this year. If you are one of these people, do you wonder why you find yourself in this position year after year? Is it because a lack of financial planning causes you to dread anything related to money?
Rather than beat yourself up this year (again) because you waited until the last minute and felt all the stress that goes along with that, try to get a new outlook on your finances. If you know where your money is going, that you have invested wisely, and you feel good in general about your financial outlook, you may not feel the need to procrastinate about doing your taxes.
Having a trusted advisor can ease some of the burden you are accustomed to feeling at tax time. If you are used to not thinking about how much money you make, how much money you save and how much you will have in the future until tax time, a Fee-Only financial planner can help. On the other hand, if you constantly worry about money, being guided by an ethical Fee-Only financial advisor will help you to feel more in control.
