By  | 

San Diego Entertainer’s own financial expert, Steve Sexton, provides the Channel 6 San Diego Living show with financial tips throughout the month. We are thankful to be able to share his financial expertise with our readers as well.

Today’s topic – taxes. This is the time of year where most people don’t look at their taxes and they should. Steve offers a few suggests along questions to ask yourself.

1. If you’re a business owner taking a bonus, taking it December 01 or January 01 can make a big difference in your taxes.

2. If you’re a passive real estate investor, you know a deduction can go away, is it time to take those additional expenses so you can take those deductions and pay less in taxes?

3. If you have mutual funds or a stock portfolio this is the time to take a look at where your turnover cost would be with a mutual fund portfolio, and maybe sell some of those losers to offset the winners so you don’t pay as much or have that money flow onto your tax return.

These are all helpful tips Steve provides. He then discusses the issue with unemployment, information regarding insider trading, and other useful financial information.
