Privatized Banking

Privatized Banking Will Set You FREE!

The Golden Rule – “Those who have the Gold make the rules.”

This corrupted twist on the biblical principle that we learned as children holds true today. Unfortunately, most Americans are not saving and thus have become slaves to financial institutions and the government. Even those who are saving have been misled into believing falsehoods about their money.

When we depend on others to provide capital to sustain our lifestyles we all suffer. The consequences of doing so carry a very high cost, and reflect on our entire nation. If we want to overcome this unneccessary burden of dependency, we must learn to control our finances.

Absolute power resides with those who control the money.  Privatized banking is a way to shift the way your money flows, putting you in control. We can not expect to understand how private banking works, or how to capitalize on it, until we realize that our current Federal Reserve policy is designed to plunder ordinary citizens.

In 1913, our Federal Reserve System was formed with the passing of the 16th Amendment. Ironically, our current system of taxation and the IRS were formed the same year This alone should make yoususpicious. You can see a copy of the original 1040 here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-utl/1913.pdf .

This system that we live under causes inflation, robs those who create wealth through taxation without recourse, discourages savings, punishes investing, causes bank failures, and creates economic programs that promote welfare.

Now our country is on the verge of collapse because of the federal government seizure of power through centralized banking. More importantly, our freedom as a nation is at risk, and we must regain control now!

By returning money to the competitive, private sector we can recapture our freedom and create consistency in an uncertain world. Learning how to privatize your banking will give you confidence, and allow you to free yourself from financial slavery. 

The Infinite Banking Concept™, created by R. Nelson Nash, teaches you how to control your money and create wealth without having to depend on financial institutions and the government. All of the details for creating your own system of finance are laid-out in the best-selling book, Becoming Your Own Banker™, available here: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/byob

You can learn more about the Federal Reserve and fractional reserve lending here: http://personalfinanceandinsurance.blogspot.com/2010/03/truth-about-fractional-reserve-lending.html

I encourage you to educate yourself by reading books on the subject. One such book is The Creature from Jekyll Island, available here: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/banking/banking-history-federalreserve.html

The time to act is now, before we lose our freedom as a nation. Take control of your finances and create your own privatized banking system. Your future and your family’s future depend on it.

Government Budgeting or Tax and Spending?

Debt to Consume 90% of GDP by 2020 According to CBO

Just this week the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released the administration’s budget numbers, reflecting the debt to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). According to their own predictions, debt will consume 90% of GDP by the year 2020.

How can we as citizens depend on a government who can not live within its means? We must live within our means in order to survive, yet our politicians refuse not to. Instead they live off of taxpayers as a parasite lives off of its host.

According to Merriam-Websters definition of budget: bud·get
Pronunciation: \ˈbə-jət\ a : a statement of the financial position of an administration for a definite period of time based on estimates of expenditures during the period and proposals for financing them b : a plan for the coordination of resources and expenditures c : the amount of money that is available for, required for, or assigned to a particular purpose.

Does it sound like the administration has planned for financing their expenditures? Do you think they have the resources available for funding their proposals? Where do you think they will get the money?

Take a look at the history of the marginal Federal Income Tax:

You’ll notice that taxes spiked up considerably after the “Great Depression” and when Social Security was created. Do you see any similarities today?

Of course, you understand that you also pay other taxes. As a matter of fact in recent years personal taxes increased 42% faster than personal income. State and local government taxes increased 168% faster than national income. The typical American pays more in taxes than they do on food, shelter, and clothing combined.

Here are some examples of taxes we pay. State Income Tax, Social Security Tax, Medicare Tax, Property Tax, School Tax, Sales Tax, Water Tax, City Tax, County Tax, Gasoline Tax, Airport Tax, Hotel Tax, Cable TV Tax, Unemployment Tax, Cigarette Tax, Corporate Income Tax, Marriage License Tax, Liquor Tax, Fishing License Tax, Food and Beverage Tax, Hunting License Tax, Road Usage Tax (truckers), Estate Tax, Luxury Tax, Recreational Vehicle Tax, Utility Tax, Septic Permit Tax, Well Permit Tax, Road Toll Booth Tax, Vehicle Sales Tax, Workers Compensation Tax, Trailer Reg. Tax, Watercraft Registration Tax, Long Term Capital Gains Tax, Short Term Capital Gains Tax, Telephone Federal Excise Tax, Telephone State and Local Tax, Telephone Usage Charge Tax, Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax.

There are few ways that you can shelter your money from the onslaught of taxes, so we must consider them all when doing our own budgeting. One such way is by NOT depending on the government. Are you the least bit suspicious when the government creates a plan to give you a tax break on the money that they have taxed you on in the first place. Consider Qualified Plans and the Federal Income Tax.

Another option you may want to consider is banking, but not in the sense that you may be accustomed to. For example, do you find it ironic that the very banks that we as taxpayers were asked to bailout, ask us to invest our money with them? Why is it that banks want to lend us money when we have it, but will not when we need it?

By Becoming Your Own Banker™ and banking with your family you can actually end your dependency on traditional financial institutions and government programs. You can learn how to create a system of finance and your own lifetime bank. https://bankforlife.wordpress.com/

Infinite Banking teaches the process of using your current flow of finances versus consumption of money. Utilizing this concept integrates protection and wealth accumulation enabling you to enhance your assets without creating additional liabilities. Traditional banks understand this, yet they tell us to do the opposite, forcing us into financial slavery.

You owe it to yourself and your family to educate yourself further. Take control of your money now by controlling how your money flows. Read the book Becoming Your Own Banker™ here: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/byob

The TRUTH about Fractional Reserve Lending and The Federal Reserve

Fractional reserve lending is a practice created by the Federal Reserve that allows banks to lend money based on a fraction of the deposits they hold in reserves. Ironically, the majority of banks hold their Tier 1 Capital (reserves they can’t afford to lose) in permanent life insurance, but they won’t tell you that.

Watch this video as Ron Paul tries to get Ben Bernanke to talk about transparency of The Federal Reserve. And, after all is said Barney Frank steps in and says we should certainly look into what Reagan and Nixon did… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gH2U1ly_aM

Currently, Bernanke is trying to end minimum fractional reserve lending for banks, meaning they would have NO LIMITS on lending! At the present time, banks may not create any more than $9 in additional loans for each $1 they hold in reserve. However, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke suggests that this may be changed to ANY amount in loans REGARDLESS of what is held in reserve. If this happens, fractional-reserve banking will become zero-reserve banking, and hyperinflation will occur.

All of this was predicted in The Creature From Jekyll Island: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/creature.html

Meanwhile, China is raising their fractional reserve limits: http://www.worldmarketmedia.com/970/section.aspx/916/china-to-raise-reserve-requirement-ratioagain

If you are concerned about your family’s financial future, this is all the more reason for you to create a system of finance that is not dependent on banks or the government. Learn how: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/IBC/theinfinitebankingconcept.html

Traditional Banking

Do you think your money is safe in traditional banks?

“My friends, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that the full faith and credit of the FDIC and the U.S. Government stand behind your money in your bank. The bad news for you, my fellow taxpayers, is you stand behind the U.S. Government.”
L. William Seidman, former head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC)

What the FDIC is planning today?

The Bankrupt FDIC is suggesting that state pension funds invest in failed banks to provide the cash that FDIC does not have. These funds are already in decline, yet some state treasurers actually are endorsing the concept. Does the word corruption comes to mind? Read this article from Bloomberg as recently reported in BusinessWeek
http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-03-08/failed-banks-may-get-pension-fund-backing-as-fdic-seeks-cash.html

GUARD YOUR WALLET!

The Politicians Want Your Money

As recently as Jan 25, 2010 the Obama Administration proposed Mandatory Retirement Plans. This is the first step towards nationalization and the forced investment of your retirement benefits. Though you may have heard little about these mandatory plans, they will force you to invest in government controlled retirement accounts to support the treasury debt market. As reported in BusinessWeek, these plans will draw opposition.

Why should you be concerned about the Mandatory IRA? By taking control of your retirement plan assets, the government is in essence confiscating your hard earned savings! Your retirement savings could be used to fulfill U.S. Treasury obligations. Unless you believe that Washington Politicians can manage your assets better than you, then now is the time to take control and protect your assets.

While government was meant to protect our nation, think of them as a parasite that feeds off of the people. This is the best description that I can give to describe their thirst for our tax dollars. Like a blood sucking mosquito, they pierce the skin almost unnoticed and then drain the life from us to support themselves.

Cleverly disguised as plans to help Americans save, these forced retirement plans will cause havoc on business and thrust our country into a financial meltdown. From hyperinflation to tax increases to tyranny, the risks involved are HUGE!

This is not an attempt to scare you. It is a fair warning from a concerned citizen. My intentions are to create awareness and motivate you to take action towards taking control of your personal assets. As a financial consultant it is my job and responsibility. I fear the control of U.S. retirement plans will ultimately lead to the confiscation of trillions of dollars in privately held assets.

More Warnings

On January 8, 2010, CNBC’s Rick Santelli, blew the horn about the possible nationalization and forced investment into treasuries. Bloomberg reported that the proposed plan may not be able to support itself. And on January 26, 2010, Fox Business News reported that the National Small Business Association (NSBA) stated that they are “opposed to any mandates that create a new and significant burden on small business.”

As far back as 1981, Ron Paul warned that language had been inserted into the 1981 Economic Recovery Act, Section 314(b) that ruled “collectibles” as not in the “public interest” and therefore prohibited from future retirement plan investments.

Hypocrisy At Its Finest

When our government takes billions in taxpayer money to “bailout” financial institutions like Merrill Lynch and Bank of America, are you not the least bit suspicious? And, when these same institutions advertise that you should invest with them, though they are technically bankrupt, does something seem wrong? They pay themselves outrageous bonuses, yet your account balances have lost billions.

Now that health care reform has been placed on the back burner, Washington Politicians have now focused their attention on more economic stimulus plans supposedly to boost employment. When will Americans learn that government cannot create jobs? Any so-called job creation by the government is only at the expense of private business. The net result is a loss of jobs as workers are pulled from one industry to another and businesses are forced to close.

How Mandatory Retirement Plans Will Work

You will be forced into another scheme, similar to Social Security, consisting of what is now being called a Guaranteed Retirement Account/Annuity (GRA). These plans will be funded by a proposed 5% of your salary. Eventually your existing retirement funds will be pushed into the government program. All of the details will be worked out along the way.

Currently, over $15 Trillion is invested in qualified retirement plans. Retirement savings make up more than 35% of all private assets and Congress has their eyes on this money. When you retire, taxes must be paid on withdrawals from these accounts. Politicians would like nothing more than to have access to these accounts now.

Teresa Ghilarducci is the author of the “Agenda for Shared Prosperity”. She became the Director of the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy at the New School for Social Research. Her plan is to confiscate the assets of the wealthiest Americans and redistribute them through government plans.

As outlined in the proposal, the government will make a contribution into every citizen’s account of approximately $600 annually, covering the unemployed and underemployed. The 5% contribution by “successful” Americans will go into a “guaranteed account” managed by the government, the same people managing Social Security.

The concern is that following the implementation of the GRA program, Congress would create future legislation to end tax deductions and tax benefits of all retirement plans therefore forcing the funds in these plans into the “professionally” managed GRA program. The other concern is that beneficiaries would be cheated out of any benefits left in IRA’s after the death of the participants. Ghilarducci’s plan calls for 50% of all balances remaining at death to be reverted to the federal government, not the beneficiaries.

What to Do

Since this is only a proposal at the time, it could be years before these changes take effect. However, since Congress already controls the rules for private retirement plans they can change the rules, just as they’ve done in the past. The good news is, you have time to protect your assets before this assault. But, don’t wait. Why would you put another dime into a qualified plan? Take an honest inventory of your assets and sit down to talk with your advisor soon. It’s your money, guard your wallet!

Americans Reject Keynesian Economics

What is it that politician’s don’t understand? They seem to think that “we”, the taxpayers that pay their salary, don’t have a say in government. Well, it’s become abundantly clear that American’s are fed up with overspending.

In case you aren’t familiar with Keynesian Economics, created by John Maynard Keynes, the premise is basically “spend more” and “grow government” to improve the economy. On the contrary, at the time of Keynes, there was also Andrew Jackson’s philosophy of Laissez Faire Economics which complemented the Constitution and promoted smaller government.

Another popular economic theory is Austrian Economics, made popular by economist Ludwig von Mises, which focuses on free enterprise. Former U.S. Presidential Candidate, Ron Paul, also embraces Austrian Economics. Paul compares Keynesian Economics and Austrian Economics

More and more American’s are waking up to the abuse of power by politicians, and they are speaking up. TEA Parties and the 9/12 Project have helped everyday people to get involved and the movements are gaining popularity.

This report displays the distrust that Americans are feeling towards BIG Government:

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN FAMILY BANK

Learn How To Create Your Own Family Banking System Using the Infinite Banking Concept™

Imagine recapturing all the money you normally pay for your car, and recapturing all the interest you paid if you financed it.  Imagine making the same profits as the banking institution that financed it.

Picture your “bank” expanding as you create a system for finance for your family.  See your branch banks growing as your family grows.

Infinite Banking teaches the process of using your current cash flow for finances versus traditional consumption of money methods.  By integrating protection and wealth accumulation one can enhance their assets without creating additional liabilities.

How does it work? Think of it this way, if you had your own grocery store would you buy groceries from a competitor’s store? If you owned your own bank, would you borrow money from a competitor’s bank? Most people agree that if you own a business, it makes sense to fully utilize that business and all its assets for not only your business but also for your personal needs. Yet that is not generally what happens especially when we make significant purchases such as cars, equipment, and homes.

By following some simple steps you can use available savings and cash flow to build your own “bank”. You can fnance things you buy through your own “bank” with loans from your “bank” to you. You then repay your “bank” exactly the same way as you would repay the financial institution you would use otherwise.  Building a system of banks increases your personal wealth.

Consider this, “we finance evetything that we buy.” We either pay interest or we give up earning interest.

Here’s the problem, the average American pays 34.5 cents of every disposable dollar to interest! And, we are not saving enough money. Currently the American savings rate is near its’ lowest in history, comparable to what it was during the Great Depression. Yet, most people are more concerned about earning interest than paying interest. Even if we were saving 10% of our income (the U.S. average is less than 3%), that would mean that our ratio of paying interest to saving is 3 to 1. Rather than fighting a head wind, wouldn’t it make more sense to create our own perpetual tailwind?

You can using the Infinite Banking Concept™. Though this concept has been around as long as the process of arbitrage, Nelson Nash was the first to explain in it in an easy to read book,
Becoming Your Own Banker™. The book details how anyone can create their own banking system using ordinary, dividend paying, whole-life insurance.

While the book has it’s skeptics, and some naysayers have even called it a scam, the process is undeniable. You will need a coach, preferrably a qualified life insurance agent that practices the Infinite Banking Concept™ themselves. Don’t expect to buy life insurance direct from the company, or ask the home office how the process works, they won’t know.

So, if you are tired of paying your hard earned money to the banks and financial institutions, and you want to recapture this interest and deposit it into your own bank, then read the book. You’ll learn the basics, see lots of examples of how you can use the concept, and understand what it means to be an “honest banker.”

8 Scary Truths About Your IRA

8 Scary Truths About Your Qualified Plan (IRA)
And, How To Avoid Being Taxed to Death!

If you are pondering the thought of contributing more than your match to your 401k or whether or not to make an end of year contribution to your IRA, THINK AGAIN!

Before you put another dime into your 401k, 403b, TSP, SEP or other IRA you need to know what the government and your employer aren’t telling you. And, the truth may scare you!

Here are the scary facts about qualified plans that you’ll want to know.

SCARY TRUTH #1:
While many people think their Qualified Plans, that’s your 401k, 403b, TSP, SEP or IRA, save taxes; they don’t.
They do 2 things:
1. They defer tax
2. They defer the tax calculation

SCARY TRUTH #2:
Your employer may be making decisions about how your 401k is managed, without your knowledge. More and more employers are now automatically directing more of their employee’s pay into their 401k, and often it is into more risky investments; even though you may have previously chosen your own investments. Much of the money is being re-directed into “target-date” mutual funds, These funds lost so much money last year, that lawmakers and regulators are now analyzing and scrutinizing their actions. Morningstar reported that many that were at or near retirement with these type funds, suffered losses of 32 to 41 percent.

Even scarier, the fees charged on target-date funds are “significantly higher than those charged by other funds on plans’ investment menus” according to MoneyCentral.msn.com on October 10, 2009.

In comparison, the growth in a properly funded permanent life contract is both guaranteed and exponential. You can also predict the minimum guaranteed value of the plan, the minimum guaranteed income you can take from the policy, and how long you could take the withdrawal.

SCARY TRUTH #3:
Many of the important decisions about your employer sponsored IRA (401k, 403b, TSP, etc) may be made by people who may have No Training or education.

According to the November, 2009 issue of SmartMoney Magazine (“The Accidental 401k Planner”), as many as 90% of the country’s employees’ 401k plans are watched over by people who “need no special qualifications and no investing expertise or experience”. Many managers hire brokers to suggest mutual funds, and brokers are not legally required to choose funds with low fees, so the outcome could cost you tens of thousands of dollars over your lifetime.

SCARY TRUTH #4:
The true impact on your wealth from 401k hidden fees is ENORMOUS! While you may be aware of some charges, many fees are not required to be disclosed to you in the 401k or mutual fund prospectus.

And, even scarier, according to a 60 Minutes report, “401k Recession”, over your working career, this can result in your losing up to half of your nest egg!

By utilizing the Infinite Banking Concept™, you can kiss hidden fees goodbye. All costs are already included in the premium, and by properly funding a participateing whole-life policy, you will actually experience reduced costs that are associated with other contracts. So, why not request a Free, No Obligation Financial Analysis now?

Just click the link below to start enjoying the benefits: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/financialanalysis.html

SCARY TRUTH #5:
As you near retirement your money in your 401k is more at risk. This is because the losses can be greater as your plan accumulates over time. A market loss in your last working years could be devastating. In a recent story in Time Magazine (“Why It’s Time to Retire the 401k”, October 9, 2009), they reported that during the recent market downturn, 401k’s of 55-to-65-year-olds lost a quarter more than those of their 35-to-45-year-old counterparts.

A dividend paying, whole-life policy actually becomes more efficient over time, and can provide you with peak growth at retirement, when you will need it most, without the risk associated with the stock market or other investments.

SCARY TRUTH #6:
Borrowing from your 401k can cause double taxation! If you borrow money from your 401k, for any reason before you’re 59½, in most cases you’re required to pay back any loans back in full with interest within 30 to 60 days, or you’ll have to pay income taxes, PLUS a 10% penalty. But, what’s worse is when you repay the loan you are using after tax dollars, so you will end up being taxed again upon distribution.

With a whole-life contract you can set the rules for borrowing and repaying the loan. And, the money received from loans is tax-free up to the cost-basis. Another benefit is that a properly funded policy will also continue to grow, even with a loan against it. A properly trained agent can show you how to receive even more tax advantages from your policy. The average family could expect to recapture hundreds of thousands of dollars over their lifetimes, just by using their life policies as a resource, without having to depend on banks or other financial institutions.

SCARY TRUTH #7:
Deferring income taxes could cause you to PAY MORE IN TAXES! And, that’s assuming tax-rates don’t increase at all. If you are deferring taxes now in a lower bracket, and you get normal cost of living raises, at retirement you could be in a higher tax bracket resulting in a higher tax rate. If taxes go up in the future, then things get even worse.

With a Maximum Efficient Contract, you could enjoy as much as a 150% better lifestyle at retirement without even touching your life insurance policy. If you make withdrawals from your policy, they could be completely income-tax free under current tax law.

SCARY TRUTH #8:
The government is in control of your Qualified Plan! And, just as they change tax laws every year, they can change the rules for your IRA. Think about what’s going on right now with government spending. Where will the money come from to fund these bailouts? Do you know that Congress has changed the rules on taxation of Social Security over the years so that now as much as 85% of Social Security income can be taxed?

So, why not take advantage of a properly funded whole-life policy that can give you protection and peace of mind without government control?

Qualified Plans: Trick or Treat?

Have a wonderful Fall Holiday!

BEWARE: You Are A Target!

Are The Politicians About To Increase Your Taxes?

It’s even worse than we feared! The politicians and Congress are after our money, in larger ways than anyone could have ever imagined. We all feel the pain of taxes, and have feared that they could go sky high, just like they have in the past. But, no one is ready for the full scale assault the leaders in Washington are planning. Everything You Own Will Be Affected By Taxes!

Our budget deficit is already skyrocketing, and it is only going to get worse. You know that our country is in a real mess, and the problem has only been perpetuating for years. Much of this growing snowball has been caused by an archaic tax system and overspending by our Government. Not to mention a failure to address the problems of our social programs. But, instead of using common sense to solve problems, our political representatives have done their best to make things worse. No matter what your tax bracket, your age, or your net worth, everything you own will be subject to vicious attacks!

The Obama administration is ready to unvail another so-called stimulus plan. It will be disguised, and they won’t call it a stimulus plan, but make no mistake… you will be paying for it.

The administration’s health care reform bill has ran into some opposition, and it is unclear what the ultimate outcome will be. However, there is no question that it will cost BILLIONS… if not TRILLIONS of dollars. And, where will the money come from???

Have you heard about the Green Treaty? You can watch a video from Lord Christopher Monckton here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMe5dOgbu40 This treaty will cost our country billions!

If you have any doubt that Global Warming is a hoax, then please take the time to visit this website formed by over 31,000 scientists who say that it is: http://petitionproject.org/

With his new Nobel Peace Prize in hand, President Obama is set to expand our war efforts by sending as many as 40,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. All while the President avoids direct questions and only alludes to what our real course of action will be. Meanwhile, election fraud runs rampant in Afghanistan, and our troops are faced with indecision. Regardless of what happens, our spending on the war will cost our families for generations to come.

Plain and simple, government is a parasite that sucks money out of taxpayers. The politicians always find a way to disguise their spending in a way that makes it look like we need their help. In other words they try to fix their problems by making us think they are helping us, read qualified plans, bailouts and stimulus. It always takes more tax dollars to pay for their spending.

Policymakers are now eyeing other ways to cover the costs of their new initiatives. The latest idea, which seems to have overwhelming support from the Democrat majority, is to start Taxing You for every securities transaction you make. You read that right, our politicians want to tax you for trading in the stock market!

The Economic Policy Institute is considering a national transaction tax that could raise $100-$150 Billion a year. All stock trades would be taxed at a rate of 0.1% to 0.25% of the value of the trade, and the tax would be levied on all financial transactions.

Though most have missed it, the Transaction Tax has already found its way into law. The President, at the urging of House Democratic leaders, submitted legislation to “recoup” from the financial-services industry any eventual shortfall in the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP.

Representative Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said he supported the idea of recouping future losses from the industry: “I was one of the ones who suggested.” Former Federal Reserve Chairman, Paul Volcker, said “it might be interesting” if Congress ordered further study of the idea of a transactions tax.

The reality is that any time Congress has raised taxes, the result has been higher unemployment and lower standards of living. Think back to the Carter years, 17% interest rates and some of the highest taxes in our lifetimes. Well, we are faced with that same scenario again. Higher Taxes are not the answer, but they are coming…

You see, some politicians think that because you’ve worked hard to get where you are, then you should subsidize those who have not. How do you feel about that?

Regardless of your income, new and higher taxes will affect you and your family. If you earn more, and pay more in taxes, then obviously you have been pegged, if you lose your job or you retire, then you will be robbed as well.

When you look at the history of taxes, and what the politicians are calling for, things don’t look good. And, if you die under current law they will take even more!

The bottom line is that if you make a substantial income, you could soon see your taxes double!”

And, don’t be fooled with recent stock market gains, there is a hidden factor. INFLATION is the STEALTH TAX! Have you noticed how much things cost these days? What will it be like when we retire? Even if we do save more money, it’s going to be worth less when we actually need it, UNLESS we have a plan to combat inflation.

What can we do about these HUGE problems? I decided that if I was concerned about these problems, then others must be too. And, many of my clients that were seeing their incomes increase now, were concerned about FUTURE TAXES.

So, I decided to make available to you a free report that outlines exactly how taxes can effect your income now and at retirement. The problems that qualified plans like IRA’s, SEP’s and 401k’s can cause. And, what you can do about it now to prevent being taxed into the poor house!

Fortunately, this report identifies problems and outlines solutions, along with simple steps you can take now to prevent the problems later. All you have to do is enter your name and email and I will instantly send you your free report. It could save you and your family MILLIONS in taxes.
If you want to avoid overpaying your taxes, and don’t want to leave your family with a hefty tax bill, get a copy of this eye-opening report for yourself. After all, wouldn’t you like to know if you’re being fooled?
