Avoiding and evading are two very different things when it comes to taxes.

Is Tax Avoidance The Same As Tax Evasion? And Is It Legal?

Be Smart: Be An Avoider

One of the issues that often crops up at our conferences is the difference between tax evasion and tax avoidance.

Tax evasion, of course, is the one that can land you in jail. And when it comes to corporations, it’s what makes for great news headlines.

Tax avoidance on the other hand is completely legal. It’s all about being smart with your earnings and putting measures in place to protect what’s rightfully yours.

And, there’s one story that really gets our audiences’ attention. It’s made some gasp, some laugh… while many sit speechless.

If you’ve been in the room with Joel Nagel (our asset-protection and tax expert) before, you’ve probably heard him share this story. He tells it at our Emergency Offshore Summit every year. And, I reckon, he’ll be telling it for a long time to come.
