CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Michael Patton, of Patton Financial Advising, submitted the following article: How Life Insurance Could Help Mitigate Taxes in Retirement.

Higher taxes could follow in the wake of soaring government spending on pandemic relief measures — a likelihood that shines a new light on the tax advantages of life insurance. Permanent life insurance offers a tax-free death benefit, and a portion of each premium goes into a cash-value account that accumulates on a tax-deferred basis. The policy owner may also access the cash value, if needed, without triggering income taxes.
