You should be able to put a big chunk of your consulting income in a solo 401(k), so that your AGI and taxable income wouldn't be that high. You should be able to donate quite a bit to charity and get those Schedule A deductions quite large, too. Someone with your income could be in the 25% marginal income tax bracket with the right budget. See, for example, viewtopic.php?t=79510
But I see no problem making your taxable investments muni bonds, so that you have no Schedule B income.
