St. Patrick’s Day is here, and every “Irish for a day” tippler in your social circle will take advantage of this convenient excuse to haul grandma out of the house for a little day-drinking. (It seems unnecessary on a Saturday, but whatever.) Faux-Irish saloons across America are tapping kegs of Guinness, pouring shots of Jameson, and covering their walls and ceilings in every Celtic cliche they can find: the shamrocks, the hats, the green beads, and of course, the leprechaun jealously guarding his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Now, leprechauns are usually pretty happy little fellas. Wouldn’t you be happy if you found a pot of gold in some misty bog? But this isn’t always true, as you’ll see if you look at the University of Notre Dame “Fighting Irish” mascot. Have you ever wondered why that little guy is so hostile? Maybe it’s because he just discovered the IRS wants a share of his stash!
Unfortunately for our diminutive Hibernian friend, the tax code has all sorts of special rules to help the IRS dig their hands deeper into his treasure:
Now, don’t go feeling too sorry for your pint-sized prospector. After-tax gold isn’t as much fun as pre-tax gold. But it’s still better than no gold at all. And with gold currently trading at $1,300 per ounce, there’s plenty in the pot to pay for good tax-planning help. Conveniently, that’s where we come in. So call us when you’re ready to pay less. Don’t count on finding a four-leaf clover when you can follow the rainbow to a plan!
