Mutual Funds – plans now

Give your plan a reality check by deciding if it has realistic goals and schedules. Consider what it is actually like to do each step that must be done, so you can complete any given goal.

There are two main types of qualified plans. The first is employer based in the form of pensions or profit sharing programs and each must comply with certain government regulations that grant the employer certain tax privileges. One advantage for the employer is that they may be able to deduct any contributions to a pension as a business expense. The employee will have an advantage as well in the form of not being liable for taxes until he or she retires and withdraws the funds. It is vital to remember that depending on the tax structure and the employee’s income, he or she, after retirement, will generally be required to pay taxes on any amount withdrawn from his or her plan.

In the world of retirement planning, there is one option that many are considering in the form of deferred compensation plans. This type of plan will allow an employee to postpone receiving wages and income for a period of time. While this might seem risky, it is the employer’s responsibility to keep and manage this money in a special fund unit where the employee is no longer working with the organization. One of the greatest benefits to deferred compensations plans is that taxes on this money are not paid until it is withdrawn from the plan and not during the period of earning. It is important to remember that employers will use broad tax regulations during the structuring of this type of plan. One aspect of non-qualified retirement plans is that they do not usually include employee contributions, and are solely based on the employee’s gross income. This means that an employee can build their retirement without paying taxes until the money is taken out.
