Sell Your Losers
Not all stocks and mutual funds fared well this year, despite a 13.2% rise for the S&P 500 through December 1. If you own investments in a taxable account, such as a brokerage account, that are worth less than you paid for them, consider cutting them loose before year-end. You can use the losses to offset capital-gains income.
If your losses exceed your gains, you can deduct up to $3,000 from your other taxable income. Losses that exceed that amount can be carried forward to future years.
Delay the Sale of Investment Winners
If you’re about to rebalance your portfolio by selling some winners so you can redeploy the cash elsewhere, remember that waiting until after January 1 means you won’t have to report the gains as part of your 2014 income. Never make an investment move based solely on the tax impact, but don’t ignore it, either.
Defer Income Until 2015
If you think a year-end bonus is in the works, ask that it be paid next year. That way, it won’t increase your 2014 taxable income. (If the firm has already announced that it will pay bonuses in December, though, it’s 2014 income even if you don’t cash the check until January.)
If you’re self-employed, send bills to clients in late December so you won’t receive payments until after the first of the year.

Who Is Designing Your Offshore Strategy ?( do you have a strategy?)
The most important thing that you MUST do is seek advice from a qualified advisor – Jack A. Bass, B.A. LL.B. (someone who understands international tax jurisdictions and tax law) . Your advisor must understand the benefits of particular offshore jurisdictions. It is your responsibility to take action.
In most jurisdictions you can set up your offshore company in as little as a few weeks.
