Factors That Affect Your Tax Obligations

Many of us assume that we’ll be in a lower tax bracket when we retire. But, in our new retirement reality, that’s not always the case.

On this week’s episode of the Retirement Solutions Show, we discuss the variety of factors that can either lower or increase our tax obligations in retirement.

Key takeaways:

  • Things like Social Security, Required Minimum Distributions, and Pensions can affect your tax obligations because they are seen as “ordinary income” in the eyes of the IRS.
  • Taxes are “on sale” right now due to the Trump Tax Plan, but they will likely increase in the future.
  • An understanding of investment conversion opportunities and timing can greatly impact your tax obligations.
