A complete action plan from Ed Slott, "the best source of IRA advice" (Wall Street Journal), to help you make sure your 401(k)s, IRAs, and retirement savings aren't depleted by taxes by the time you need to use them.

If you're like most Americans, your most valuable asset is your retirement fund. We diligently save money for years, yet most of us don't know how to avoid the costly mistakes that cause a good chunk of those savings to be lost to needless and excessive taxation. Now, in the midst of a financial crisis, there is more need than ever to protect your assets. The Retirement Savings Time Bomb, by renowned tax advisor Ed Slott, shows you in clear-cut layman's terms how to take control over your retirement savings plan. This easy-to-follow plan helps you place your assets to avoid the latest traps set out by Congress in addition to any that might be set down the road, so you can keep your hard-earned money no matter what. This book is required listening for every American with savings and investments who is planning to retire, be it five years from now or 50.

Very technical, good reference

This was a boring book to listen to on audible, but it would be a great reference book. It is very technical, and I did not find a lot interesting in it, but then again I'm not much into this stuff anyway. I did find it interesting that they said not to buy real estate with an IRA.

it's not for everyone but is the authority!

I've read and followed Ed Slott's advice for many years and have found no better authority for the tax laws and rules as of 2021. Most of this book didn't apply to my situation, since it is a comprehensive work, but I learned several valuable things that did apply and improved my knowledge significantly. Thanks Ed!
