Lynn Mayabb, Senior Managing Advisor, BKD Wealth Advisors
Sheyna Steiner of Bankrate.com quotes Lynn Mayabb, senior managing advisor at BKD Wealth Advisors, in an article about ways that pre-retirees can design a successful investment portfolio. Mayabb offers insight on tax strategies and explains that a beneficial way to reduce a tax bill in retirement is with a Roth IRA or Roth 401(k). “In an IRA you can afford to have capital gains come off and you can afford to have interest that’s not tax-free, so you can afford to have taxable bonds that might have a higher rate of return because you’re not being taxed until you withdrawal,” she says.
