The government needs cash, and so they will raise everyone’s taxes… yes everyone. We will start with confiscating money from the wealthy. They can call it a tax but is now a confiscation. Then, as I was reading in the WSJ, they are looking at having the total capital gains tax increase to 46%. That is up from 26%.
So, your clients have some money earmarked to be passed down and not used as retirement income. Maybe they have gains and should consider paying taxes at a lower rate and placing the money in a single premium life plan. They would leverage the cash, create a nice death benefit and be able to pass it on… free of federal Income tax and free of capital gains tax. Plus, unable to do 2 of the 6 daily living requirements, you can use the money while living. And, about a 10 minute approval process. Can I upset you just a little more? During the quest for “Build Back Better,” there was movement to eliminate the “step up basis” and have the heirs pay taxes upon death and not liquidation. Reminds a lot of us “veteran financial pros” of the saying “Had to sell the farm to pay the taxes.”
