12 Steps to Financial Privacy – By Matthew Mullhofer

  • Never release your social security number.  Only release your social security number when it is absolutely necessary.
  • Use a corporation or another entity for major transactions.
  • Avoid writing checks because they leave an extensive paper trail.
  • When investing offshore, ensure that you are in compliance with all laws and reporting requirements.
  • Only disclose what is necessary to financial institutions.
  • Maximize the bearer transactions that are not reported under your name.
  • Use financial professionals that will keep your financial information confidential.
  • Attorneys are bound to keep all of your information confidential.
  • Always have your accountant work through your lawyer to insure confidentiality.
  • Use a post office box or drop box for mail correspondence.
  • Avoid using safety deposit boxes, use private vaults instead.
  • Prepare a living trust to bequeath your property.  This will avoid the high cost associated with probate as well as any loss of privacy.
  • Arrange your investments so that you can provide the least possible amount of financial information.
