Some won't be.....in all probability, just as the statement said.

I'm going to do my best planning to avoid paying taxes on my 401(k), IRA rollover withdrawals whenever I start withdrawing by attempting to withdraw only an amount that won't put me into a taxable income situation.

Or, if I can't, I plan on making charitable contributions to negate the taxable income amount.

Isn't that a bit like saying, "I'm going to quit my job paying $150,000 a year and get on welfare so I don't have to spend $30,000 on taxes."?

Yeah, you're 'saving' $30k right there.



I mean, I can see managing it so that you don't hit the highest bracket, and stay right below the cut off, but no income taxes?

Maybe I need to study up on taxable income in retirement.
