You can deduct losses from a natural disaster or theft, but...
... you can't include the amount covered by insurance

This is the time of year when we re-examine what success looks like.

In rethinking and re-examining, you'll soon discover that sometimes the "most successful" people can be the most impoverished ... and those without many zeroes in their accounts can be flat-out rich.

"Success" is a state-of-mind -- and it's tied to gratitude. Gratitude is the enemy of fear. It's like an opposite magnet for it. Walk in gratitude, and fear just melts away.

One thing that should be on your radar: Year-end moves that will affect your 2022 tax positions. Whether it's spending, saving, asset structure, etc ... we only have one more month (or so) before the books close.

After 12/31/22 ... we're mostly confined to "historical" work on your tax files.

Reach out to talk about it.
