How To Build Massive Wealth by Permanently Lowering Your Taxes

Tax-Free Wealth is about tax planning concepts. It’s about how to use your country’s tax laws to your benefit. In this book, Tom Wheelwright will tell you how the tax laws work.

They are there to help you and your business—not to hinder you.

Finally! A tax book that lifts the veil for everyone!

My tax preparer was very impressed with the book. She knew some of the strategies in the book because she does them for her wealthiest clients. But, it never occurred to her that they also work for the working middle class who are looking to move upwards financially. I am very enthusiastic about the positive changes I am making in my financial life. Bryan Yen

Never thought taxes could make me want to earn more money!

Taxes rarely excite anyone. Tax-Free Wealth actually got me pumped with ideas on how my family could make more money and pay less taxes. While the tips and secrets aren’t for everyone, those with an entrepreneurial spirit will get pumped about Tax-Free Wealth. If you work for someone else and aren’t interested in real estate, investing, or owning your own company, don’t waste your money – this book is not for you. B. Waddill

Finally, the “Rich Dad” Principles Are Clear

If you are a fan (or student) of the “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” series, and understand those basic principles, but may feel as if you are still missing a piece of the puzzle toward building wealth—-then you must read this book. This book will fill that void.

This book ties all the Rich Dad principles together and demonstrates how and why they work to build vast wealth over a lifetime—and beyond—for generations to come. I truly understand now why the old adage of “the rich just keep getting richer” is so true: the tax code. Andrew Stock

“Above the line are always the best types of deductions, and especially with the new #tax law in place. The reason is that many tax benefit limitations are based on adjusted gross income, or AGI,” said CPA Tom Wheelwright, author of Tax-Free Wealth Book and CEO of WealthAbility

By the end of January, many people give up on their goals and resolutions for the year. Last year, my goal was to do an Ironman triathlon. At the end of January, I contracted pneumonia. Easy to give up at that point. Then in March, as I was getting over my pneumonia, I contracted bronchitis. Then in April, I got whooping cough (who knew an adult could even get whooping cough?). So a 10-month training scheduled was condensed to 6 months (triathlon was in November). I decided to keep going. Despite traveling to South Africa and Australia along with my normal domestic speaking assignments, I did my best to train. While I only did about 50% of the training, I took on the triathlon and made it 90% of the way, through mile 17 on the marathon (after a 2.5 mile swim and a 112 mile bike ride). I didn’t make it to the finish line. I did prove that I could do this with a little more training. Don’t give up. Anything is possible.

2019 for me will be about building. Building a network of tax and accounting professionals. Building a studio next to my home. And building my endurance to run a marathon. What’s 2019 going to be for you?

Met Dr Jonas Salk today at SXSW. Quite the honor.

AOC is pretty impressive. Very thoughtful and respectful. Passionate without being angry. Very interesting.

About to see A.O.C. Quite the energy. Lots of press.

With Trevor Noah and Jake Tapper now. Very cool.

Just watched Amy Webb discuss emerging technology trends. No privacy. Biometrics. A little spooky.
