Program Description



Many Americans assume that their taxes in retirement will stay the same or go down, unfortunately for most this may not be the case. Historical federal tax rates have been as high as 91% in the 50’s, 70% in the 70’s and 50% in the 80’s. Upon retirement social security may be taxable to as much as 85% to the recipient and required minimum distributions from retirement accounts also can create substantial taxable income. Include pensions, rental property income, capital gains, dividend and interest income and you can see the picture is somewhat unclear on future taxes.
