Track your Wealth with a Personal Net Worth Statement

Many of our clients turn to TAG Bill Pay because they have a complicated financial life and need help preparing their net worth statement. By having a clear picture of their wealth, including assets and liabilities, they can make better decisions with their investments and long-term financial goals.

What is a Net Worth Statement?

Net Worth = Assets – Liabilities

Let’s start with the basics.  A net worth statement is a personal balance sheet.  It lists your assets and liabilities.  Assets are items listed that have cash value (or can be converted to cash).  These assets typically include any money that is in your bank account, retirement account, investment accounts, and major items such as real estate or automobiles and other valuable property.  Liabilities are the debts or expenses that you owe. These include: bills, loans, mortgages, etc.
