There have been profound changes to the tax rates in the upper income brackets. Please look at the good news for married couples and individuals who fall into the new 24% bracket (first chart on the right, for 2018). I doubt these low rates will last forever — maybe not even another four years. Do low rates followed by higher rates suggest anything to you? A gold star if you thought Roth IRA conversions. A conversion may make great sense while the rates are low. You may be able to create tax-free income for you and your family for generations at the lowest tax rates ever.
Jane Bryant Quinn joked in a 2004 Newsweek column that my mantra was, “Pay Taxes Later.” It was true then, and it is true now. If you get nothing else right in your retirement planning, get this key idea right: Don’t Pay Taxes Now, Pay Taxes Later – Except for the Roth. My free report shows why this advice is critical for each stage of your retirement planning.
