Rock Valley College's Community Education division will offer a new fall session entitled,Do You Want a Tax-- Free Retirement? presented by Antonio Filippone, RFC, on Wednesday, October 24, 2012.
Antonio Filippone, RFC, FMM, President of Rockford Retirement Resource Center states, "Continuing to defer taxes when taxes are likely to be higher into the future may no longer be the smartest course of action. This class will help people see why taxes are likely to be higher down the road and what can be done to effectively plan for that potential reality."
Antonio "Tony" Filippone is a speaker, consultant and author of Financial Planning For The Not Yet Wealthy. Mr. Filippone has been featured on local news as well as international publications for financial advisors.
