In his best-selling book The Power of Zero, David McKnight laid out a step-by-step plan on how to get to the 0% tax bracket in retirement. Why is the 0% tax bracket so important? Because if tax rates double, as some experts predict, two times zero is still zero! He also showed how, in many cases, it's impossible to get to the 0% tax bracket without using a Life Insurance Retirement Plan (LIRP).
In this follow-up book, Look Before Your LIRP, he makes the case that, while a variety of LIRPs may help get you to the 0% tax bracket, not all will do so with the same efficiency or effectiveness. In fact, finding the right LIRP for your tax-free retirement plan can be just like finding the ideal spouse. Just as you likely had a list of qualities you were looking for in a life-long partner, you should have certain attributes and provisions in mind when looking for the ideal LIRP. Look Before Your LIRP spells out exactly what you'll need to build a successful LIRP relationship and reveals the one LIRP best suited to get you to the 0% tax bracket.
