Financial Services
Sage Financial Partners 

Next to salaries, taxes are the biggest expense for many business owners. It’s no secret that corporations such as AT&T, Intel, Microsoft and others employ advanced strategies to legally save millions of dollars a year in taxes. Small and medium-sized businesses have been kept in the dark about these tax-reduction strategies. Sage Financial Partner’s team of highly-skilled tax attorneys works with business owners and their CPAs to enable clients to significantly reduce their federal tax liability. This results in a bigger paycheck and more take-home pay for the business owner. In over 5,000 tax planning projects, clients’ taxes have been reduced by 25% or more.

AgriPlan/BizPlan - Section 105 Plan (For Business Owners and their Spouses)


AgriPlan/BizPlan is a Medical Reimbursement Plan based on an often-overlooked tax code, IRS Section 105, which allows small businesses to deduct 100% of their out-of-pocket medical, dental and vision expenses as well as their health and long term care insurance premiums on their Schedule C.  If an employer does not have the Section 105 plan, they can only deduct their health insurance premiums on their 1040 Return.  Plus, they get no deduction for their out-of-pocket medical, dental and vision expenses unless they exceed 7.5% of their Adjusted Gross Income.  AgriPlan/BizPlan saves on average over $2400 in taxes for every client!

FlexSystem – Section 125 Cafeteria Plan


Sometimes known as a Flexible Spending Account, FlexSystem allows employees to pay for certain expenses on a pre-tax basis.  By paying for these expenses before being taxed, employees lower their taxable income, pay less in taxes and increase their take-home pay.   

 

FlexSystem offers employees and employers a win-win situation when it comes to saving money. Employers are able to realize a number of benefits including: 

  • Reduced payroll taxes/cost – Social Security contributions are reduced for each dollar of employee participation.
  • Recruit and Retain Quality Employees – an employer is viewed in a positive light by current and prospective employees because a pre-tax benefit package is being provided with the employee’s individual interests in mind.

 

TASC offers a variety of additional programs that are also available to you including:

·         COBRA administration

·         Individual and Group 401(k) administration

·         Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs)

·         Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)

·         Estate Plan Administration

 

All Gateway Chamber Members qualify to receive a “Members Only” discount on all initial set up fees – first year plan administration fees.  For example, on a Flexible Spending Account, you can receive up to 20% off initial set up fees.  This level of discount is not offered to any regular retail customer.
