“Nothing is certain but death and taxes.” – Benjamin Franklin
TAXES AND CHANGE ARE INEVITABLE, BUT A FIXED INDEX ANNUITY CAN BE A POWERFUL STRATEGY FOR MANAGING THE IMPACT OF TAXES ON YOUR CLIENTS!
Strategies for Management
There are two main strategies suggested for maximizing tax efficiency
Strategy 1: Tax Deferral
Non-qualified funds held outside of an IRA or employer sponsored retirement account that are not needed for current spending, like a 401K, may generate taxable income that could be deferred until the funds are needed. Money placed in a fixed index annuity has the opportunity for tax deferred growth potential.
You can make interest on your principle, interest on your interest, or even interest on taxes saved!
Strategy 2: Partial Roth Conversions
Fixed index annuity products can be used for full or partial roth IRA conversion. This is a powerful tool for creating tax diversification in a retirement income portfolio as well as a nontaxable retirement income distribution stream.
