In this week’s Hidden Wealth Solution Insight, I teach that taxes will be mountainous over our lifetimes. We recently conducted a Tax Savings Analysis for a 66 year old man who believed that he would need $100,000 a year to maintain his retirement lifestyle. He was astonished when our analysis showed that one third of his income would be paid to taxes.
It doesn’t matter who we elect as president. Hillary Clinton has already called for higher Federal income taxes, a whopping 42% increase in the capital gains tax and a revision of the estate tax. Under the Clinton plan, we will pay more tax while we live and the government will collect even more tax from our estate when we die. Donald Trump recently increased the tax rates in his plan because his original rates were too low.
The chart below shows how the 66 year old gentleman I referenced earlier needs $153,000 a year from his IRA in order to net the $100,000 needed to maintain his lifestyle. At this rate of withdrawal, his retirement savings will run out in under nine years, before he even turns 75! This assumes that there are no tax increases.
Stop the IRA Tax Trap!

The only way to avoid this tax trap is to have your savings in a safe-savings vehicle that:
- Only goes up when the market goes up and never goes down when the market drops and
- Eliminates the IRS from your IRA so that you pay no tax on the growth or the distributions.
No traditional IRA can provide either of these things.
