Proactive Steps for Future Tax Increases

As tax season 2024 comes to a close, it’s time to look ahead and prepare for potential future tax increases looming on the horizon. Provisions from the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) are set to expire by the end of 2025, meaning tax rates could rise in 2026. Here’s what you need to know to safeguard your finances:

Know this Regarding Future Tax Increases

Expiration of Tax Cuts: The TCJA lowered individual tax rates, doubled the standard deduction, and shielded most estates from federal estate taxes. However, if Congress fails to extend these provisions by the end of 2025, tax rates will automatically revert to 2017 levels, potentially impacting your tax bill.

Federal Estate Tax: The expiration of TCJA provisions could reduce the estate tax exemption, exposing more estates to federal taxes.

Tax on Retirement Withdrawals: Higher tax rates could make withdrawals from traditional IRAs and tax-deferred accounts more expensive. Consider converting some funds to a Roth IRA to shield your savings from future tax hikes. However, be mindful of potential consequences such as high-income surcharges and taxes on Social Security benefits.

Tax Planning Strategies: Don’t make hasty decisions regarding potential tax increases. Instead, plan carefully and consider your long-term financial goals. Remember that your personal tax rate could decline in retirement, potentially offsetting any increases in overall tax rates.

Stay Informed: Stay updated on tax law changes and consult your CPA and RFG Wealth Advisory to develop a tax-efficient strategy tailored to your individual circumstances. By planning ahead, you can confidently protect your financial well-being and navigate potential tax changes.
