Sales Week: As tax season approaches, talk with clients about the tax advantages of FIAs
TAX ADVANTAGES CAN HELP YOUR CLIENTS GET THE MOST OUT OF THEIR FIAS
Help clients leverage the tax treatment of fixed index annuities
It may still feel like winter in some parts of the country, but spring is in the air – and that means your clients likely have taxes on their minds. Help provide them peace of mind by starting the conversation about how a fixed index annuity (FIA) can provide tax advantages as they plan for retirement. Those advantages include:
All interest earned on an annuity accumulates on a tax-deferred basis, which means an FIA isn’t taxed until the money is withdrawn.1
At withdrawal, only the earnings are taxed on a Non-qualified FIA, not the annuity’s principal.
While the IRS defines contribution limits for some retirement plans – like Traditional and Roth IRAs and 401(k) plans – there are no IRS contribution limits for Non-qualified funds to an FIA.
Seize this opportunity during tax season — while your clients may be considering the impact of taxes on their financial outlook — to offer up this tax-advantaged solution to helping them meet their retirement goals.
