This week's meeting sponsor is.............

Wealthquest, Joe Richmond, and Steve King are proud to support the Rotary Club of Cincinnati as they celebrate their 10th anniversary.

Are you interested in reducing your income taxes? There is still time to shelter profits from 2016 and look for savings in 2017, but changes generally need to be made by December 1 for the upcoming year. New DOL regulations are coming for Retirement Plans and tax rates may be on the rise. Ask your accountant to call Wealthquest for a complimentary review of your 401(k), profit sharing, or pension plan. Bring Fortune 500 qualified plan expertise to your company for a Rotary price.

Wealthquest was founded in 2006 on the principal of bringing tax prep (CPA), investment advice (CFA), and financial planning (CFP) to Cincinnati families for one simple affordable rate. Their one-stop shop approach has been a big part of their success. They expanded the mission to include the needs of small businesses and their 401(k)s and pension plans.
