Will Your Taxes Affect Your Retirement?

Strategies to help you work toward a lower tax

bracket in retirement

When you retire, you leave behind many things— the daily grind, the commute

to work, and maybe even your previous home. However, one thing that will

always remain is a tax bill. When you understand how investments are taxed

and set strategies accordingly, you can make decisions that help keep income

taxes in check.

• How to be tax-efficient in your current bracket.

• How Social Security is taxed.

• Ways to create tax-free retirement income.
