Don James, CPA/PFS, CFP

Don is the director of tax & financial planning at Kiplinger & Co., CPAs. He is also affiliated with Fox College Funding as a college consultant.  Fox helps parents with a college-bound high school student, who won’t qualify for need-based financial aid, reduce their college expenses by thousands of dollars.  In many cases their customized planning results in a family knocking off a full year’s cost of college.

Fox’s planning utilizes combinations of academic, cash flow and tax reduction strategies for higher income or high net worth families who assume they have to pay the “sticker price” for college because they can’t qualify for financial aid. These tax strategies, which were developed by three nationally-known CPAs, can result in the IRS paying a big piece of the family’s college expenses.  They focus on showing parents how they can pay for college and still be able to save for retirement and other financial priorities. Most people are not even aware that this type of planning exists.

Don will be speaking on “Strategies to Significantly Reduce Your Family’s College Expenses”.

Don’t miss this important presentation on how to reduce your college bills by thousands of dollars!

There is no charge for this event but reservations are required as space is limited.
