015 – Understanding the Complexity of the New Tax Code

KTsMoneyMatters Podcast

George Ferullo


In this episode, KT and George discuss:

  • Getting taxes done this year
  • Keeping a cool financial head
  • Writing off state and local taxes against the federal return
  • The trade off



Key Takeaways:

  • Your total tax obligation may not change as much as you think
  • Not everybody is going to save taxes
  • Alternative minimum taxes is a method on how to calculate your tax liability (state/local taxes and miscellaneous itemized deductions)… it wasn’t adjusted along with inflation
  • Only children under the age of 17 at the end of the tax, qualify for the tax credit


“This is a very, very complex tax code that has just been introduced to us… so tread lightly.” – George Ferullo
