"I consider it a great honor to be an InvestmentNews Innovator. I've been a CPA for more than 40 years. When new, complicated tax laws on IRAs rolled out in 1986, I realized there was very little information available to navigate this ever-changing retirement planning landscape. I set out to help fill this void and provide the education needed for Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money," said Slott. "With retirement laws continuing to change and evolve, the demand for continuing education is higher than ever, and I am proud to be able to contribute to the industry by providing accurate information on the latest retirement planning strategies."
As a professional speaker, best-selling author and television personality, Slott is known for his unparalleled ability to turn advanced tax strategies into understandable, actionable and entertaining advice.
