Tax-Loss Harvesting

Volatility is fact of life. Market down days are typically perceived by investors as a bad day in the market; however, at Avantax, we utilize tax-loss harvesting as a strategy to benefit from market volatility. When the market is down, we strategically and proactively “harvest” your clients’ tax loss which can then be used to reduce their taxes.

1040 Analyst™

The 1040 Analyst is a unique mining tool created by Avantax. Using this software, you can seamlessly integrate your clients’ tax data (using their form 1040) and reveal an individualized set of financial opportunities.

Technology and Products You Know

You will also have access to some of the best wealth management software providers in the industry including eMoney, MoneyGuidePro®, WealthscapeSM and Envestnet™.
