Three Strategies to Reduces Taxes

By the Retirement Solutions Show

On this week’s podcast episode, we’re digging into three powerful tax strategies you can use to reduce your tax obligation in retirement.

Tax strategy is a crucial component of retirement planning that is often overlooked. Some retirees see tax planning as hard, overwhelming, and stressful. On the other hand, many retirees simply don’t realize the tax-reducing opportunities available to them if they make some strategic tweaks to their plan.

Ralph Hicks, Michael Hicks, and Ryan Gilmore reveal three of the most common tax-reducing strategies in this episode, including:

  1. The Bucket Strategy
  2. Roth IRAs and Conversions
  3. Qualified Charitable Distributions

They also discuss:

  • [05:55] Understanding how your retirement accounts are taxed
  • [07:42] How, when, and why you might utilize the Bucket Strategy, Roth Conversions, or Qualified Charitable Distributions
