Current tax planning strategies emphasize the deferral of current income taxes, on the basis that your federal income tax rate may be lower at retirement. As you decide how much to defer, please keep in mind that federal income tax rates are unpredictable and subject to significant fluctuation. It is possible that federal income tax rates at the time you take a distribution (e.g., at retirement) may be higher than tax rates at the time of deferral. Other factors, including any other sources of income and state income tax rates, may also change the tax bracket and overall tax rate to which you may be subject in the future. Please consult with your tax advisor for an individualized tax planning strategy and advice. The Hartford does not predict or in any way guarantee favorable tax results.
