Six Tax Benefits Of Tax-Deferral That Help You Secure A Comfortable Retirement
~ By Rick Kelly, CSA ~
Taxes are one of life’s major expenses and one of many threats retirees face in trying to achieve a secure retirement!
One way to offset taxes in retirement is to add tax deferral into your plan!
Here are six benefits that you gain by using tax deferral in retirement:
- Reduce Your Current Tax Bill
The interest, dividends and capital gains that you reinvest create unnecessary taxes. If you don’t need the earnings to live on, why pay taxes on them? By repositioning some of the assets into tax deferred assets, you won’t pay taxes on the returns until you actually withdraw the money!
- Increase Your Current Cash Flow
By reducing your current tax bill, you’ve just reduced an expense which increases your cash flow!
- Can Reduce Or Eliminate Taxes On Social Security Benefits
If 50% or 85% of your Social Security Benefits are taxable, simply defer the taxes on the on the investment income you don’t live on. Again, more cash flow!
- You Can Reduce The Taxes Caused By Your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
If you’ve reached 70 . and own an IRA/401k, etc., you must withdraw your taxable RMD. Simply defer the taxes on the investment income you don’t live on, which can offset the taxes created by your RMD. Again, more cash flow!
- You Can Accumulate More Money
Assuming a 28% tax bracket and a 3% return, in five years, $100,000 grows tax-deferred to $115,927 vs. only $111,277 in a taxable vehicle.
- Your Money Grows Faster
To accumulate $115,927 at 3% taxable, it takes almost 7 years vs. only 5 years in tax deferral!
The benefits of tax deferral provide you with yet another tool to help you secure a comfortable retirement!
