Deloitte’s 2017 Essential Tax and Wealth Planning Guide: Financial Preparation Amidst Economic Complexity
NEW YORK, Feb. 01, 2017 — Deloitte today launched its complete “2017 Essential Tax and Wealth Planning Guide,” which provides insights for high-net-worth individuals on how to approach complex tax issues this year.
With wealth in the United States expected to reach $120 trillion by 2030, taxpayers face increasingly complicated portfolio choices, heightened exposure and risk. As a result, it is essential to plan early and revisit plans often. The Annual Wealth Guide offers timely, pertinent and easily digestible information to help individuals shape and refine their short and long-term wealth strategies.

The first edition of the guide was released in October 2016 and offered readers insights on individual income tax and wealth transfer planning, as well an examination of the potential tax implications for owning unique investments like art, airplanes and yachts.
The second edition of the guide was released in December 2016 and discussed postelection tax policy, with a side-by-side look at how the new Trump administration’s tax policy proposals compare to those of the previous Obama administration. It also addressed leading practices for wealth distribution to heirs and charitable organizations in post-mortem and philanthropic planning.
The third and final edition of the guide addresses globalization and steps to consider before moving or traveling to a new country, as this may help avoid unanticipated consequences of differing tax rules in multiple jurisdictions. The family office is also a focus of the guide, with a look at the key trends many family offices can consider to manage risks and protect assets that will allow it to flourish over time.
