New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – When people think of April, it brings to mind April showers, warmer weather and tax time. Ben Fuchs, founder of Fuchs Financial, joined CT Style’s Rachel Lutzker to explain how to avoid the need to freak out by planning ahead for tax time.

In addition to being a Certified Financial Planner ® (CFP), Ben is also a Certified Private Wealth Advisor® (CPWA) professional. In this interview, Ben talks about some of the things people need to keep in mind, going forward, so they don’t get so frenzied:

  • Now is the time to take a step back and prepare for changes in the economy.
  • As interest rates rise, financing purchases will cost more.
  • Know that layoffs may affect your retirement plans.
