Without a comprehensive tax strategy in place, many retirees may pay 3x more in taxes* than they need to. For decades, your focus has likely been on building your nest egg and saving wealth so that you can live comfortably in retirement. However, if this is all your retirement plan entails, it is flawed. Because it is not just about how much you have saved for retirement, it is also about how much of that wealth you get to keep after taxes. An optimal retirement plan utilizes tax savings strategies and helps to ensure that you are not paying more than you need to in taxes.
