Joe and Al discuss seven ways to create tax-free income: investing in municipal bonds, selling your home, renting your home, moving to a tax-free state, using a 529 plan, HAS plan and doing a reverse mortgage.
0:08 “Did you know that California municipal bonds are 100% tax-free, meaning that the interest income that you earn from them (as long as you’re a California resident) won’t require you to pay taxes?”
0:20 “If you have a residence that you’ve lived in for at least two out of the last five years, if you’re single you get to exclude up to $250,000 of gain; if you’re married you get to exclude up to $500,000 of gain”
1:07 “You can move to a tax-free state, not federal tax-free but state tax-free. What are those tax-free states? Nevada, Washington, Texas, Florida, Wyoming, South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire and Alaska”
1:44 “You can take money out of the equity of your home and create some tax-free income there as well”
