Are my investments taxed?
Depends what type of account you have. We offer 3 types of accounts. Traditional IRA, Roth IRA and Unregistered account
- Roth IRA’s are not taxed since they are funded with your after-tax dollars
- Traditional IRA’s are only taxed when you start withdrawing which the government only allows you at age 59½ without penalties. Once you turn age 70½, you have to take the Required Minimum Distributions.
- Unregistered accounts are taxed but it depends on your marginal rate.
