Why Should I Buy Property?
Any refinancing means a longer new loan. If you have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage with only 20 years remaining but you want more cash flow monthly and you think you’ll be saving more by refinancing into a new 30-year agreement, you will erase 10 years of payments. Given this scenario, you have to have a very good reason to get a California refinance, like lowering your monthly bills, paying off big debts, sending your child to college, and other big expenses.
Other common types of life insurance are term life and variable universal life. Variable universal life invests some of your premium payments into various types of mutual funds, instead of the guaranteed fixed investment in the regular universal life and whole life policies. These mutual fund investments in the variable life policies can go up or down so there is considerable risk to the cash value portion of these policies. The monthly or annual premium or cost of variable life is much more than universal or whole life.

Of course, this is easier said than done, but the benefits are huge. If your income comes from a business that you own, it’s much easier to pay for expenses with pre-tax dollars. Obviously, you have to have a real business (not just a hobby) and the expenses must be legitimate business expenses, but this allows you to have a lot more flexibility in your tax planning. Realize that you can (I would say must) still start a business even if you have a full-time job. If you want to create great wealth (and minimize your tax expense), don’t let fear, unbelief, or lack of knowledge prevent you from starting your own business. You must take action to overcome those obstacles.
Regarding Taxes: When it comes to taxes I will never profess to be an expert.
