Smart moves at the beginning of tax season can help get your financial house in order.
Contrary to popular belief, tax planning isn’t limited to the months between year-end and April 15. In fact, smart tax planning goes beyond deductions and credits and should be incorporated throughout the year. As Americans prepare to file their returns, let’s take a look at what we should be thinking about for tax season and beyond.

Take a look at how your retirement benefits can replace your workplace paycheck.
January 30, 2019
Retirement may evoke thoughts of long, relaxing days and free afternoons with your grandchildren. But while this period of unstructured time can be sweet and easy, it also requires doing your due diligence to prepare for a myriad of more practical changes. While you’re planning your retirement, you’ll need to address how your retirement benefits will compensate for your workplace ones. Doing so could help preserve your retirement fund and offer you something more precious than money: security and comfort.
By collaborating with your financial advisor, you can establish strategies to pay for essentials such as healthcare as well as determine income-generating methods to cover your paycheck in retirement. Here are a few topics you’ll want to cover.

J Singleton Financial would like to share with you an interview Judy had the pleasure of doing with Stephan Abrams for The Jackson Hole Connection, a podcast created and inspired by the many stories of the wildly interesting folks connected to Jackson Hole.
Below is a brief description of Judy’s interview with Stephan.
“In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits Judy Singleton. Judy is a entrepreneur, financial planner, world traveler, and a former Yellowstone Parkie. Judy started visiting Jackson Hole on family road trips in the 50s. At the advice of her sister, Judy’s first solo experience out in Wyoming was working a summer in Yellowstone at the Snow Lodge in 1971. In 1984 after opening a successful candy and nut shop in Alabama, Judy decided to take her business up to Teton Village.
Stephan and Judy talk about ambition, hitch hiking, being a Parkie, opening a business, traveling by train, surviving in Jackson Hole, learning new skills, and what motivated Judy to become a financial planner.”

Read the weekly economic commentary from Chief Economist Scott Brown.
January 4, 2019
Financial market volatility remained elevated in the first few days of 2019, but it’s much more palatable when it is to the upside. Market participants remained concerned about a number of issues (global growth, trade policy, dysfunction in Washington), and fear remains a key factor in the outlook. Whether that fear abates or intensifies will tell the tale.
The employment report is composed of two separate surveys. The establishment survey (which covers 149,000 businesses and about 651,000 individual worksites) generates estimates of payrolls, wages, and hours. The household survey (of some 60,000 eligible households) yields reasonable estimates of the unemployment rate and labor force participation but terrible estimates of the monthly level of employment. The establishment survey covers the pay period that includes the 12th of the month (which can vary from firm to firm). The household survey is taken during the week of the 12th. The December Employment Report included annual benchmark revisions to the household survey data, but this was a very mild revision. The annual benchmark revisions to the establishment survey data (which ties the payroll estimate to actual payroll tax receipts) will be released next month, but early indications from the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggest that this will be a relatively modest revision.
With the holiday season in full swing J Singleton Financial wanted to spread some holiday cheer to the residents and families at Jackson’s local nonprofit, Community Safety Network. CSN supports lasting change in the lives of those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
We asked the residents to compile a list of their Christmas wishes and we checked it twice! The JSF team spent one afternoon wrapping the presents with some of us learning to wrap for the first time. Another afternoon was spent as Santa’s elves delivering everything to Andy Cavallaro and the rest of the CSN staff.
The JSF Team is so grateful to be given the opportunity to collaborate with everyone at Community Safety Network and will cherish this memory. We hope we were able to brighten the holiday season for those currently residing at CSN the way they were able to brighten ours!
