Taxes play a role in every financial decision and action and thus are hidden in every aspect of your personal financial plan. In this country, tax evasion is a serious offense, while tax avoidance is a legal and acceptable seasonal pastime. Tax avoidance is characterized by paying the lowest legally acceptable amount of your tax liability through deductions, deferred plans and exclusions. The tax code is so dense that even the IRS has trouble keeping up with loopholes and unintended policies, and attempting to manage your own taxes is overwhelming.
