This week, Joe discusses the "tax torpedo." The tax torpedo occurs when the effective marginal tax rate exceeds the statutory tax rate, and it can make a major impact on how much a client may have to pay in taxes.

As a financial professional, you have an opportunity to show your clients how to plan for tax-efficient withdrawals during every year of retirement. Use Tax Clarity® to help your clients avoid the tax torpedo!
