Are you aware of these sustainable retirement income facts?
- Withdrawals from qualified retirement accounts—401(k)s, 403(b)s, 457s, IRAs, SEPs, SIMPLEs, profit sharing plans (PSPs), defined benefit (DB) plans, etc., funded with pre-tax dollars, are fully taxable as ordinary income at the federal and state level.
- Withdrawals from Roth IRAs and Roth 401(k)s are tax free, as are loans from life insurance policies and interest income from most municipal bonds.
- Interest, dividends, and capital gains that occur in non-retirement accounts are reported to you annually on a 1099 form. You will pay tax on most, but not all, of this type of investment income as it occurs. A taxable account could be taxed at: a) ordinary interest income rates, b) qualifying dividend income rates, c) non-qualifying dividend income rates, d) long-term capital gains rates, e) short-term capital gains rates, f) ordinary income rates, or g) not at all if you simply have a return of principal.
“At Towerpoint Wealth we strive to help each of our clients achieve, and then maintain, their financial independence.”
