This episode we are answering questions about investment taxes. There are several things that you can do to reduce your investment taxes including the use of retirement accounts and buying and holding tax efficient investments. We cover six ways to help with reducing those taxes. We talk about when (or if) you should rebalance your portfolio and what to do if you have to recharacterize from a Roth IRA to a traditional. We discuss if it is ever a good idea to do tax gain harvesting and go over what opportunity zone investing is and what type of investors are participating in it.

Our guest is a general dentist three years out of training. He has hit a couple of milestones, back to broke and a six figure net worth. But he came on the podcast today to celebrate buying a car with cash. He purchased a 2017 minivan with 20K miles and felt rich doing it! How much car can you afford? Check out this episode for the answer. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/how-much-car-can-you-afford/ 

At some point in our financial lives, it will be time to buy a home. A physician mortgage can be a good vehicle for a young doctor who’s just out of school and has a more effective place to use their money than on a big down payment. These loans allow doctors to secure a mortgage with fewer restrictions and a lower down payment than a conventional mortgage. But if you’re further advanced in your career or deeper into your journey to financial freedom, buying a home with a conventional mortgage and then, later on, potentially refinancing that loan to a better rate with a shorter time frame could be a great move. Wherever you are in your financial journey, make sure you use the mortgage that will be most financially beneficial for you. Hop over to our recommended tab to learn more about all of your mortgage and refinancing options at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/mortgage. You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.

Today we are talking about whether it is better to pay off debt or invest. Like most financial questions the answer is, it depends. Read more at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/pay-off-debt-or-invest/. We discuss what to do if you have a chunk of money sitting in savings account and what to do with the money you are saving to purchase a home. We also update you on some important changes to PSLF. The requirements are being relaxed to include more people and more types of loans through October 2022. And finally, we have a guest on the podcast to share about a real estate investment opportunity.

This dentist just recently got back to broke! He finished training with a net worth of negative $510K. 5 years later they have reached a net worth of $40K. Consistently chipping away at your debt and managing your finances pays off. Make a plan early and track your financial goals with these four measurements. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/track-your-financial-goals-with-these-four-measurements/ 

I estimate that 80% of doctors need, want, and should use a financial advisor and/or an investment manager. Some investment gurus such as Dr. William Bernstein think my estimate is way too low. At any rate, if you want to use an advisor temporarily or for your entire life, there is no reason to feel guilty about it—just make sure you are getting good advice at a fair price. If you need help updating your financial plan or just getting one in place, check out our list of recommended financial advisors at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/financial-advisors.
