Episode 6 // Quarterbacking Your Tax Return

Championed by our friends at Community Futures Saskatchewan

It’s tax season Founders, and like it or not it’s time to pay up. But how much, is in large part up to you.

Today, we’re tackling the topic of tax. And with taxes being familiar turf for NTN Pro, Stan Swartz, President, InfoMoney Solutions Inc., he’s quick to point out many of us lose precious dollars by not taking a strategic and coordinated approach to dealing with them.

Tune in as Stan coaches us on the importance of knowing our end game, recruiting the right pros, and approaching the goal-line with unrelenting ferocity and focus.

Part 1 // The Game Plan

With roughly 42.5% of our personal income going towards taxes, it’s time we tackle the issue head-on. As Stan likes to say, “It’s not what you make, it’s what you keep that’s important.”

Listen up as he walks us through the importance of building both a short-and long-term strategy. When you know where you’re headed personally, you’ll be able to draw a game plan that’s a win-win-win for you, the business and CRA.

Part 2 // The Players

Tax planning isn’t a solo sport. It takes a team. A team of first-draft, top-tier picks.

In Part 2 of Quarterbacking Your Tax Return, Stan outlines the ideal roster of pros we need to have on-side, and recruiting tips to lock-in top-talent.

Part 3 // The Ten-yard Line

It’s so close you can see it; the deadline drawing near. April 30th, to be exact.

But before you show off your elaborately choreographed tax touchdown dance, you’ll want to take advantage of the weeks to come and use this window wisely. In Part 3, Stan maps out a bold strategy, one we can follow play-by-play that will get us to, and over, the goal-line.

What's more, he lays out the post-game discussion we need to have with our pros to ensure a stellar year to follow.
