Tax Efficiency Class on January 19 at 2 PM

Learn about the different ways to store your money, what that means at tax time, and what is most beneficial for you. It is time to take control of your taxes. A representative from Thrivant will be here to answer your questions so that you can make the best decisions concerning your tax situation. The class is Sunday January 19 at 2 PM. You do not need to have a Thrivant account to participate, and this is not a sales pitch. This is an opportunity for you to understand how to make the most of your money. Registration is encouraged, but not required.
