Why it's important:

On average, physicians pay around $100,000 in federal, state, and local taxes*. As a high-income professional, smart tax planning is essential to make sure you are not overpaying. By reviewing your tax returns, investments, and estate documents, we may be able to identify strategies to help reduce your taxable income, generating tax savings that can go towards funding your financial goals.

Building a thoughtful tax plan for side income, creating significant savings

After beginning to take on supplemental locum tenens assignments, this doctor realized she needed a more solid financial strategy for her additional income and was starting to feel overwhelmed by the complexities of personal and business taxes. At Earned, we advised that she save this income in a Solo 401(k) account, where the money can stay tax-deferred and grow over time. With this change, our client reduced her taxable income while allowing the locum tenens money she earned to grow tax-deferred until she’ll need it. Scenarios presented are for illustration purposes and may not be typical of all clients. Individual results will vary.

Your assets are secure

Your assets are custodied at Fidelity and protected by SIPC. As one of the nation’s largest institutional custodians, Fidelity oversees $12.6 trillion in assets under administration as of December 31, 2023. Fidelity’s financial stability, its compliance with industry regulations, and its insurance protection via the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) all serve to help safeguard your investments. Investing involves risk. SIPC does not guarantee any level of performance and does not protect against investment losses.
