Tax Minimization Planning
While very few investments avoid taxes altogether, many allow you to defer paying them until retirement – when you may be in a lower tax bracket.
Rising taxes are a concern for many individuals approaching retirement. It’s important to incorporate tax planning into your financial decisions.
Investing in or purchasing a tax-deferred vehicle means your money can compound interest for years, deferring income taxes, which provides the potential to earn interest at a faster rate. While very few financial vehicles avoid taxes altogether, insurance products only allow you to defer paying them until retirement – when you may be in a lower tax bracket.
Please note that withdrawals will reduce the contract value and the value of any protection benefits. Additional withdrawals taken within the contract withdrawal charge schedule will be subject to a withdrawal charge. All withdrawals are subject to ordinary income tax and, if taken prior to age 59 1/2, may be subject to a 10 percent federal additional tax.
