You’ve probably heard the old saying from Benjamin Franklin, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.”
This sentiment was echoed by Margaret Mitchell in her famous book Gone with the Wind in 1936, “Death, taxes and childbirth! There’s never any convenient time for any of them.”
It would seem that across the ages, everyone agrees that death and taxes must occur.
But high taxes are NOT inevitable!
In his book, A Voluntary Tax, George Cooper explains that careful planning can minimize taxes you are obligated to pay.
Many of the very wealthy avoid taxes by working with someone skilled in income, capital gains and estate tax reduction. They pay their fair share, never more.
Tax evasion is illegal, while tax avoidance is 100 percent legitimate and within your ability and rights!
Perhaps, ole’ Ben Franklin was wrong. Maybe taxes—at least high ones—aren’t inevitable after all!
