0:57 “Taxes will take way more from you than probably any other expense in retirement. You have to have a forward-looking tax strategy”

3:32 “If you pay the least amount of tax in your overall income strategy, you can take significantly less risk”

5:28 “Here’s the rule if you had a rental and you’re converting it to a residence – you have to prorate your rental use, and as a result you don’t necessarily get all of the exclusion”

9:25 “If I sell my principal residence at a loss, I can deduct that loss on my tax return – the answer to that is false”

11:42 “I think it’s likely that they’ll (IRS) limit our ability to put money in a Roth, but as far as what’s in a Roth, I feel confident that it will stay tax-free”

16:27 “You can maneuver your taxes in such a way that you could avoid capital gains tax altogether”

17:25 “There’s another way to pay no taxes on your capital gains, and that’s with something called tax loss harvesting

19:06 “Two things to consider when you look at a [Roth] conversion or the 401(k) contribution: there’s no AGI limitation; you can make as much as much as you want…there is no income limitation”
