How to Manage Taxes in Retirement

Here are some tips on how to manage taxes in retirement;

  • To stay within the 15% income tax bracket: maximum annual income = single, $37,950; married filing jointly, $75,900.
  • Investors can harvest capital gains with a zero tax rate as long as their income stays in or below the 15% tax bracket.
  • To help reduce retirement tax liability, traditional IRA owners can conduct partial conversions to a Roth each year in amounts low enough to remain in the lower tax bracket.
  • Drawing down income from taxable accounts first allows tax-deferred accounts to compound growth as long as possible.
