What are you doing to protect your financial plan from this big threat?

I get a little “tin-foil hat” sometimes.

BLUF (bottom line up front)

If you aren’t, AGGRESSIVELY, creating TAX FREE wealth, you are setting yourself up for a lot of pain.

No. Roth is not enough.

People often see the threats to their retirement investing through an entirely market driven lens.

– Inflation 📈

– Volatility 🎢

– Poor earnings 🤮

– The economy 🏭

If any number of those turn out bad, you stand to lose 📉 a chunk of money (and, worse, time.)

People often overlook one of the major events that can IMMEDIATLEY cost you 5, 10, 20, 50% of your assets.

Case in point in the article below. “But it only applies to people with big $$$!”

The point is that the federal and state government can change what they like, when they like?

Don’t believe me. For 133 years the State of Washington considered a capital gains tax to be unconstitutional. In 2022….never mind, JK, LOL.

The tax man can not only change tax RATES, but the NATURE of taxation.

Today’s capital gains could be tomorrow’s ordinary income.

This is why I am outside the box, kind of obnoxious, and occasionally cost myself potential clients by using every tool available to create tax FREE wealth in my client portfolios.

Could the IRS/State attack the Roth? Absolutely. The government could:

1️⃣ Income test Roth distributions (yeah, you might pay income tax twice.)

2️⃣ Net worth test Roth distributions

3️⃣ Take away Roth contributions based on income/net worth.

We cannot control what the legislatures do. What we can control is how we prepare.

So the question is NOT what they will do. The question is what are YOU doing to protect your financial plan.
