0:49 “If you take a look at the tax code today, we are already feeling the higher rates. More things are going to happen, so now is the time to protect yourself.”

1:16 “I’m 49 years old, and am wondering how much I should be putting in my Roth IRA every year so I can retire comfortably around the age of 65?”

1:50 “$5500 is the maximum amount you can put into a Roth IRA. Once you turn 50 then you can put another thousand dollars into that overall plan”

2:39 “If you can create some of your income tax-free, you’re going to be ahead of the game, compared to others because we have a progressive tax system which means the more money you make the higher the tax rate”

2:50 “If some of your dollars are tax free, you stay out of those higher tax rates “

7:07 “Today’s retirement planning is different from when your parents retired. You have to look at things differently”

8:09 “There are a lot of problems with these standard retirement accounts because you’re handcuffed; there’re so many laws and regulations around these and if you screw it up, you’re going to pay a ton in taxes”

9:40 “We see this over and over again, people end up in higher brackets in retirement than while they were working”

16:10 “There are three different pools of money that you can invest in and they’re all taxed differently. You have tax free money, taxable money, and tax-deferred money

18:19: “When are you the most vulnerable? It’s when you’re retired! Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a nest egg that you could pull from and not pay a dime in tax?”

18:34 “Take a look at it, figure out what your goals are, and then look at the taxes before you dive into the investments”

22:20 “Typically when it’s your own IRA or your spouse passes and you inherit their IRA, there is no required distribution. But when you inherit a Roth IRA, you do need to start taking a distribution based upon your life expectancy”
