More About This Show
Tom Wheelwright posits that throughout his experience closely studying the tax law, he’s realized that it has one clear purpose. The tax law is a series of incentives that the government uses in order to encourage people to participate in certain behaviors.

For example, the government wants us to send our children to college; therefore there is a tax credit for doing so. Additionally, the government wants us to donate to charity. By doing so, you will receive a tax deduction.

He explains that most of the tax law is geared toward business owners and professional investors, because this is the most effective way to stimulate the economy. This principle is actually quite simple, but many people don’t understand it.

Most people hate paying taxes, and are petrified by IRS audits. Tom explains that this stems from the fact that there is so much incorrect information out there about taxes. The truth is, being informed about taxes requires not only an influx of information, but also a mindset change.

Tom clarifies that when you understand the law, there are tremendous benefits that you can receive. The tax law is simply a way that the government enforces policy. All we have to do is understand how the tax law works and start thinking about taxes from a business perspective, then we are able to reap the benefits.
