To Use a Clients’
Income Tax Return
To Make More Money?

These days, every estate planning professional is looking for new “profit centers” you can quickly and easily incorporate into your practice.

Here’s one.  If you know how to read and properly utilize a prospect’s or client’s 1040 (Federal Income Tax Return), you’ll generate a lot more revenue - - more investment, annuity and insurance sales, more asset management fees, more tax planning fees and more estate planning fees.

Financial planners, annuity and insurance agents, CPAs and estate planning attorneys who have previously attended our basic overview program entitled “How to Read a 1040 for Fun and Profit” have screamed out for an even more detailed, advanced-level program - - so here it is!
