As October approaches, our San Francisco Tax Tips newsletter focuses on the very opposite of what we did last month: babies vs. retirement. The kick-off article investigates the tax advantages of having a “baby on board.” (To download the October eLetter, click here.)

Beyond the Baby: Gold as a Collectible and Wellness Benefits

Beyond the tax “advantages” of having a baby, the October newsletter dives into the issues of buying gold for your investment portfolio. Unknown to many consumers, gold is taxed as a “collectible” vs. stocks or other financial assets, and so faces a much stiffer tax rate on any gains. Who knew? Well, not anyone who just had a baby, as those folks are far too busy dealing with late nights and diapers. Besides babies and gold, the newsletter concludes with a discuss on wellness plans. Whether you’re a young parent, worried about the ups and downs of gold, or just your typical San Francisco health nut, a corporate wellness plan may be just the prescription you need.
