  • Services

    From tax planning and investment management, to wealth preservation plans, establishment of foundations, and other philanthropic entities, Excel Tax & Wealth Group offers its clients a full range of tax, financial and estate planning services.

  • Investment Management

    In order to help each client meet his or her financial goal, we base our process on a personalized approach using a range of investment strategies. As a fee-only advisor, our advice and recommendations are tailored to our clients' investment goals, desired return objectives, risk tolerance, time horizon, cash requirements, and tax situation.

    With our fiduciary responsibility, you can rest assured that we will work for your best interests, providing you with sound advice regarding financial tools such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds. Our mission is to help you preserve principal, maximize income, and accumulate capital.

  • Tax Planning

    Proactive tax planning minimizes our clients’ tax burdens and builds a solid foundation of tax-reduction strategies that can result significant tax savings. We offer ongoing proactive tax advice in accordance with your investment goals to help put you on track for the financial future you deserve.

    We can work with your CPA or will refer you to one of our strategic partnerships to provide tax planning, preparation or filing services.

    Tax planning services include, but are not limited to:

    • “2nd Opinion” 1040 Tax Optimization Reports
    • Personalized Tax Reduction Reports
    • Business or Charitable Tax Reviews
    • Roth Conversion Analysis
  • Financial Planning

    As an investment advisory specializing in comprehensive financial and investment planning, we can provide our clients with innovative strategies and solutions that are transparent and consistent with their goals.

    Abiding by a fiduciary standard, we put your interests above all others, including our own. Most advisors and brokers work by suitability standards, which means their compensation is derived from the very same investment products that they recommend, resulting in a conflict of interest.

  • Estate Planning

    Estate planning includes developing strategies for estate taxes, incapacity, avoiding probate, wealth transfer, charitable giving, trusts, business succession, and special needs.

    Utilizing wills, trusts, life insurance, gifts, and tax exclusions, our clients’ estate plans are tailored to their goals and values. We can work with your attorney or will refer you to one who will structure your wills, trusts, powers of attorney, business entities, or foundations.

  • Charitable Planning

    Most people give to charities with the intent of supporting worthwhile causes but are unaware on how to maximize their tax deductions. Our tax-favored charitable plans help our clients support their causes, leave a legacy, and pass family values to each generation.

    With proper charitable planning advice, you might be able to remove the asset from your taxable estate, receive a substantial, immediate tax deduction, and even guarantee income protection.

    Our charitable planning services include but are not limited to:

    • Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs)
    • Charitable Lead Trusts (CLTs)
    • Foundations
    • Endowments
    • Supporting Organizations
  • Retirement Planning

    Our specialty is creating a more predictable income stream for retirement, which requires a specific blend of current income and future growth.

    With an in-depth analysis of their financial and tax situation, our clients receive a retirement strategy tailored to their specific needs that is low cost, efficient and flexible. We help you design a plan that helps to maximize your retirement income and helps protect you from market risks.
