A Word from the CEO
For many of us, tax season begins in February. We've received our Forms W-2 and Forms 1099 and are beginning to sift through last year's expenses or fill in tax worksheets before visiting the accountant or inputting data into tax preparation software.
Our article, Tax Tips for 2020 and 2021, highlights 10 provisions of the tax code that may apply to you. They include pandemic-related tax provisions, tax benefits available to those who DO NOT itemize as well as tax benefits available to those who DO itemize.
Preparing your taxes means you already have most of your income and spending data in front of you. This makes it a great time to take a broader look at your financial health. This is especially important for those in their 30s, 40s and 50s. Are you on track to achieve your competing financial goals? Our article, 5 Financial Housekeeping Tips for 2021, is a great place to start.
Please note that you will be unable to make any investment changes or initiate loans and withdrawals in your JRB account beginning at 4:00 PM ET March 8, 2021. This "blackout period" is for the JRB's recordkeeper to update changes to the Fidelity Freedom Target Date Funds. The blackout should last for one day, but could take up to three days.
If you are concerned about the blackout or want to discuss any aspect of your financial and retirement plan, please send me an email or call 888-JRB-FREE (572-3733).
