How the Rich Pay Less Taxes (and How You Can, Too)


According to a 2021 study, the wealthiest 400 billionaire families in the United States paid an average federal individual tax rate of just 8.2 percent.

For comparison, the average American taxpayer in the same year paid 13 percent.

So, what do the rich know that you don’t?

For one, the rich are proactive tax planners.

Me? You? We’re reactive when it comes to our taxes.

We pay AFTER the fact when there’s so much we could’ve done ahead of time to help us keep more of the money we make.

We sat with Elliot Pepper who has got a heck of a lot of initials after his name. He helps people plan their financial futures through ACTIONABLE and PROACTIVE tax planning and preparation.

This episode of Kosher Money is anything but boring. It’s informative and fun.
