Good investing includes minimizing taxes wherever possible. If you’ve followed me or the blog for long you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I’m a big fan of the Roth IRA for this exact reason. You pay income tax on the dollars you contribute to the account, but you never pay them afterward.
I’ve written about Roth IRAs quite a bit. Musings here on the blog have covered how to execute a back door Roth IRA conversion, a mega back door Roth IRA conversion, and when & how to convert your tax deferred savings during your retirement gap years.
Roth IRAs aren’t perfect though, and they’re not for everyone. So what other options are out there for investors trying to avoid taxes? This post will cover five.
