"Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies" Receives Accolades From Financial Industry Thought Leader

"Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies" by Kirsten Cool, William Meyer and William Reichenstein Proves a Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategy Could Extend Retirement Assets Up to 10 Years

LEAWOOD, KS--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2016) - "Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies," written by Kirsten Cool, William Meyer and William Reichenstein, has received accolades from financial industry thought leader, Harold Evensky, CFP®, AIF®, chairman of Evensky & Katz/Foldes Financial. Evensky listed the paper in his recommended latest research for financial practitioners.

Published in the Journal of Financial Planning (March 2016), "Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies" contests the conventional wisdom regarding retirement asset withdrawal sequence widely used in the financial industry. The paper proves other strategies to be more tax-efficient, including timing withdrawals from tax-deferred accounts when those funds are subject to low tax rates and converting funds from tax-deferred accounts to a Roth IRA at a rate that fully maximizes the tax bracket. Using these alternative strategies could extend the life of retirement assets by as much as 10 years. Evensky summarized the takeaway as, "Taxes matter!"

Meyer and Reichenstein have made it effortless for financial professionals and consumers to take advantage of these alternative, more effective withdrawal strategies with software available through the company Retiree Income. Known as Income Solver™, this software is the culmination of more than 10 years of research and software development. Learn more at
