Penguin Random House they're their big five publisher and they move at a snail's pace which I suppose is good because they don't want to just throw something out there after having worked on, it for a month they're very methodical they want to make sure that everything's perfect before they they roll it out, to the world so be looking for that January 2021 of course I'll be podcasting about.

Them out to friends or clients or what have you and they can actually listen or watch the movie and as they watch the movie your your view count goes. Down then he lets you know when you hit about 50 or so you, can go to the tax train calm the attacks train calm to learn more about that well we are in the new. Year and with the new year of course come important changes to, the IRS tax code to income contribution limits to sorry income limits to contribution limits of all the various thresholds that we have to know about when it comes to power to your plan, and remember when it comes to the power of zero you, have to know what these different thresholds are because you could violate a threshold on the one hand that forces you to. Pay attacks on the other hand so you'd have to be keenly aware. Of all these little pitfalls that are more like landmines really that are scattered all over the place of course we're helped here to help you circumnavigate those those pitfalls in those landmines first of, all let's start off with the Roth IRA. The the new income contra the income threshold at which point your.

Ability to contribute to Roth IRAs gets phased out it's now for a single person it's 124 to 139 and for a married couple it's 196 to 206, hundred ninety six thousand two hundred six thousand now remember how this works is let's say your married couple and you, have income 201,000 modified adjusted gross income okay and because you're halfway through that phase-out range remember. It's 196 to 206 you are 5,000 into that $10,000 phase-out range your ability to contribute to the Roth. IRA gets cut in half okay both for you and for your spouse so instead of being able to contribute the $7000 you and your spouse would only be able to contribute $3500 each. That's how that phase-out works so just be aware, of that as you're contemplating I know it's it's tough to even figure out ahead of time what's your contribution limit or what your income is going, to be in a given year that the nice part about the Roth IRA is you have up until April 15th of the following, year to figure out if, you're going to contribute okay so you can get a fair idea of what your modified adjusted gross income is going to be and whether you're violating any of these thresholds, or not I wish I could say it we're that easy for the Roth conversion with the Roth. Conversion you have to decide whether you're going. To do it before December 31st and if you sort of guesstimate and and and sometime in January said man I wish I didn't do that you can no longer go back in time and change that, you can no longer go back and modify your tax return and recharacterize that Roth conversion. So you have the you have the onerous task of trying to figure out if, a Roth conversion is number 1 something you should do number 2 up, to what income tax bracket should you be converting in order to maximize that that Roth conversion in any given year ok let's. Move on to 401ks this has changed a little bit you can now if you're younger than age 50 you can now contribute 19500, which is up from nineteen thousand and twenty nineteen or you can contribute twenty six thousand dollars if you're over age 50 that's up from 25 in 20:19. So these are positive things especially when you consider that that applies to the Roth, 401k as well you can now contribute massive amounts of money to these tax-free vehicles which I'm obviously encourage.

That you do I'm as you know a big fan of Roth IRAs Roth 401 k's Roth conversions anything with the word Roth in, them I think is something. You should take a look at given what we talked about last week we're marching into a financial apocalypse I don't want to over try to overstate my case here but. We are marching into a future that looks very very grim very very daunting and very very sobering and the least you can do is try. To protect yourself from the impact of tax rate risk because tax.
