There are two types of retirement income – tax free and tax deferred. Most individuals have tax deferred assets in the form of a 401K plan or a traditional IRA and are not aware that the amount of money they will be paying in tax upon retirement may prevent them from having the lifestyle they anticipated. Such strategies typically cause your social security benefits to become taxable as well. Many people are also unaware that there are different ways to create a tax-free retirement. Putting together a proper retirement plan takes the input of many individuals. We commonly work together with our clients, their financial advisers, and their CPAs to ensure that we implement the best plan for now and for retirement.
