An Educational Presentation on Eliminating Taxes in Retirement
Understanding Social Security Strategies & Developing a Tax Free Pension Plan
When you save for your retirement with a 401(k) or an IRA are you really saving on taxes? The short answer – not really. You’re simply delaying federal taxes you’ll owe to Uncle Sam.
This is why it’s important to have a clear understanding of how your sources of income will be taxed during your retirement years.
What many people often overlook is the way Social Security retirement benefits are taxed. Did you know that, depending on your income, 50% to 85% of your benefit may be subject to federal taxes?
Quick example: if you’re retired and make over $45,360 combined, 85% of your Social Security benefit is taxable.
When you add in the federal taxes you’ll owe on withdrawals from tax-deferred retirement accounts and any pension benefits you receive, it takes a big bite out of the money you rely on in retirement.
Considering you’ll need about 80% of what you earned during your working years to pay your expenses when you retire, the challenge becomes clear.
