LifeCycle Tax and Wealth Management: Who Are We?

LifeCycle Tax and Wealth Management was founded by Justin Gates, a seasoned tax and financial business professional. Justin realized early in his career that there was a gap between the planning process of tax accountants and financial advisors*. The thing that stood out to Justin was that these differences didn't affect the tax accountant or the financial advisor* but directly impacted the client’s current and future tax and financial situations.

Justin feels that the client is the heart of the business. A strategic and holistic approach to align tax and financial needs will make a significant impact on improving a client’s long term financial plan. Justin wants to provide an individually personalized tax and financial plan* to clients of all income levels by providing honest, transparent, competitive, strategic, and family friendly services. 

LifeCycle Tax and Wealth Management focuses on the holistic financial picture of clients ranging from individuals to small businesses by strategically analyzing all aspects of their situation. The firm creates unique processes to allow financial strategies created to flow seamlessly into client’s everyday schedules. LifeCycle Tax and Wealth Management takes pride in being educational and training clients to implement the strategies created to fit their financial situation.

Justin founded LifeCycle Tax and Wealth Management on the concept of providing a Value-4 experience:
