PROVIDING GUIDANCE THROUGH LIFE’S TRANSITIONS
The Practical Planner, LLC is an independent, family-owned, Fee-Only financial planning firm that provides comprehensive, tax-focused financial advice and wealth management.
As Fee-Only Certified Financial Planners™, clients pay directly for our professional advice and are not sold products.
As a Registered Investment Advisor, we are among a select group of advisory firms authorized to access funds offered by Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA), and we use DFA funds extensively along with Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), index funds, and other select low-cost investment vehicles.
As Enrolled Agents, we understand tax laws and consider tax implications of any decision that is made. We work with our clients throughout the year to lawfully minimize their tax bill and ensure they avoid the mistake of overpaying taxes.
You Will Have a Trusted Partner to Help You Make the Best Financial Decisions
Using a life-integrated approach, we will identify your life goals, and then integrate them into all areas of your finances—taxes, investments, estate planning, risk management, education planning, retirement, and more—so that those goals are supported.
You Will Save on Taxes
Paying more than you owe in taxes is a sure way to impede your financial progress. As personal income tax specialists, we include tax planning and tax preparation services in our plans, and evaluate every recommendation we make for tax implications as well.
You will Save on Fees
We use no-load, low cost mutual funds and exchange trades funds.
As an ACP Member, we pledge to be:
Holistic in outlook. We will consider all of your circumstances, family needs, goals, values, and aspirations when making comprehensive financial planning recommendations.
Professional in conduct. We will protect your privacy. We will strive to maintain the highest ethical standards possible in our work and life. We will continually enhance our skills and credentials through continuing education, and will refer you to other professionals when you need help in an area outside our expertise.
Educational in nature. We will guide you through your options and explain them clearly to help you make the best choices. We will always take the time to make sure you understand our advice.
Independent in compensation. We will never sell you a product nor will we take a commission or a referral fee from another professional. You will receive objective, unbiased advice from us.
Committed to your success. Holistic financial planning is a process, not an event, and we commit to adjusting your plan as your life goals change.
