Lower your tax bill when hitting retirement

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I have a few years to go until retirement, but I worry about the impact of higher taxes on my retirement income. Any way to know what to do about that?
Answer: No one knows for sure what the future of tax rates is going to be, for retirees or anyone else. But it is a mathematical fact that the unfunded promises we have made to retirees and others are unsustainable, given our present tax revenues. We don’t have enough money to pay for all the promises we’ve made.

Many women end up managing their finances alone at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, the first time many of them get involved with financial matters is during a crisis, such as a spouse’s death or divorce.

Reflection on Tozer’s ‘The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing’

Asher, Jemery.jpg

With the arrival of spring comes the great joy of every man — yard work. Though I currently hire a yardman, there was a season in my life when I would undertake this task on my own. One spring several years ago, I bought an Echo line trimmer from a friend. It was in used but good shape, and I got a great deal on it. I fueled it up and used it without any problems for one season. Then, the next year when I tried to crank it up, the engine seized. It simply wouldn’t start.

Here’s to hoping next trip to Ruston is eventful
