Financial Planning Tip(s)
Why Not to Overfund a Retirement Plan
In this updated post from a few years ago, we remind how easily it is to overfund a 401k plan and why, while it is not the end of the world, it is not a good tax situation….
Should you accidentally over fund your retirement plan … what occurs is a double taxation!
- You do not get the deduction for the contribution
- You will likely pay taxes on the eventual distribution
Job change is the most likely reason for overfunding!
Pesky Late Arriving Tax Form Reminder – Form 5498
In this mid month post we remind those of an extra late arriving tax form….
Murphy’s law being applied, the form just arrived last week….about two weeks after our post…..
Reason for receipt:
- Rollover of a 401k or the like to an IRA – Most frequent
- Contribution to an IRA
- Contribution to a SEP
One of the most confusing parts of this form is that even though you may have made a qualified contribution for a prior year i.e. 2020, if you made that contribution in 2021, depending on the type of contribution the Form 5498 MAY show your contribution in year 2021.
Capital Market Comments
Inflation or No Inflation
In this part two post, “The Smartest Guys in the Room” post we discussed via interest rate futures graphs the movement after FOMC dot plot adjustments and the interest rate markets….
This is an updated Graph of the 2 year US Treasury, which is holding lower, (higher yield) possibly due to faster expected rate increases!
This is the ultra long 30 Year Treasury, which continues to trend higher (lower Yield) possible pricing less inflation from the above mentioned expected shorter term rate increases!
Ok…that’s a wrap for the June review…. Hello July!
Have a Great Day, Talk to You at the End of July!
