Fixed Annuities

A Fixed Annuity could earn a competitive rate of return and is guaranteed* for a specific period of time. Many investors utilize Fixed Annuities for short-term alternatives to banking or Wall Street savings products. All Annuities grow tax-deferred so you are not taxed until the earnings are withdrawn, which could provide a valuable tax reduction strategy when utilizing Fixed Annuities for Tax Deferral.

If we re-position assets into a Short-Term Fixed Annuity it is possible to reduce the overall amount of our taxable income, which may help in several areas of our tax return, including the possible reduction of Social Security taxation that could occur for those over the age of 62 1/2 that are currently drawing benefits.

Fixed Annuities are shorter in regards to term than other types of Annuities. All Annuities have surrender charges and withdrawal charges so we need to be careful that the money we position into a Fixed Annuity will not be needed for the entire term of the contract whether it is for 3-years or five.

We offer a complementary consultation which would include a Tax Analysis to see if you’re paying taxes on your Social Security Benefits and if there is a way to eliminate or reduce these taxes. If you’re CPA, Accountant, Financial Professional, or Tax Preparer have not laid out a detailed plan to lower your taxes, then a second opinion would be recommended.
