The Great 401k deception: Pay taxes now or pay MORE taxes later.
Are you caught in the 401k tax trap?
Here’s what every professional ought to know:
- You understand when you contribute to your retirement plan, you get a tax deduction now on your contribution and have more money in your pocket today.
- But, by taking the deduction now you deferred the taxes until later. You pay the taxes in the future.
- When you take money out in the future, you will pay income taxes at whatever rate taxes are at that time.
- So, you have pushed off this tax liability into the future. Do you think taxes will be lower or higher in the future?
When you take money out of your 401k in the future, will you be paying higher or lower taxes? (Remember, your withdrawals are fully taxable.)
Taxes are at historic lows today.
- As hard as it is to imagine, you are probably paying the lowest tax rates of your life time.
If taxes return to previous levels are you prepared to protect your wealth from tax increases?
