eMoney Advisor has ensured advisors are all prepped for the filing season by releasing new tax planning features. The additional capabilities will let the clients see how tax strategies can affect their financial plans. In a few clicks, a client will be able to see the touchpoints between their tax bracket floor, the tax base for the year, and the taxable parts under Roth conversion.

The features, complementing the Total Taxes Report tool eMoney released earlier, will allow advisors to add real-time dynamics and clarity into conversations with their clients.
