How taxes are applied to an investment can make an incredible difference. This calculator is designed to help compare a normal taxable investment with two common tax-advantaged situations: an investment in which taxes are deferred until withdrawals are made, and an investment in which taxes are paid on money that goes into the account, but all withdrawals are tax-free.
A 401(k) can be one of your best tools for creating a secure retirement. It provides you with two important advantages. First, all contributions and earnings to your 401(k) are tax-deferred. You only pay taxes on contributions and earnings when the money is withdrawn. Second, many employers provide matching contributions to your 401(k) account.
Use this calculator to determine your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). The IRS requires that you withdraw at least a minimum amount, known as a required minimum distribution, from some types of retirement accounts annually.
