Richard C. Hitchins, CPA, MBA, CFP

Certified Financial Planner Professional

2401 PGA Blvd - Suite 280-P, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410

Our Company is built upon Trust, Integrity, Ethics, and Character

We specialize in tax-free Qualified Plan income strategies for a small group of successful individuals who are three to ten years out or less from retirement using real estate and leverage.

Wealth and Tax Management

We open the door to a potential tax-free retirement.

We use the two biggest benefits of the Tax Code to protect large retirement balances from being decimated by the highest levels of taxation.

  1. Your retirement accounts have a disease: they are infested with taxes.
  2. Your retirement accounts have a Mortgage.  Why would anyone enter retirement with a Big Tax Mortgage around their neck costing the dearly each year they spend down their 401(k) or IRA?
  3. Your retirement accounts have Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) that increase each year, and so will your taxes.
