Many consumers don’t fully consider or understand the impact taxes can have on their retirement plan. Failing to properly structure your assets and growth strategies can lead to the unnecessary loss of a portion of your retirement income. While you can’t avoid taxes, there are strategies and solutions that can help you retain more of your accrued wealth. This is where the process of tax planning comes into play.
Tax planning is the evaluation and analysis of a financial situation to determine its most tax-efficient structure. Every financial solution or product will have a tax treatment that needs to be addressed. Some may have tax-deferred benefits and see a tax liability only on distribution. Some may be taxed as the asset grows. Some, such as retirement accounts like 401(k)s and IRAs may have contribution limits and incur penalties for early withdrawals.
It’s important to see tax planning as an integral part of your overall financial and retirement planning process. You shouldn’t only be concerned about taxes when you are ready for retirement; effective tax planning examines your strategies every step of the way.
