    Webinar: The Power of Zero - Get to a 0% Bracket and Transform Retirement

    Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association! 

    David McKnight will focus on retirement. 

    There's a massive freight train bearing down on the average American investor, and it's coming in the form of higher taxes.
     
    The United States Government has made trillions of dollars in promises for programs like Social Security and Medicare it simply can’t afford to keep. The only way to deliver on these promises is to raise taxes. It’s simple math. Some experts have even suggested that tax rates have to double just to keep our country solvent. Unfortunately, if you’re like most Americans, you’ve saved the majority of your retirement assets in tax-deferred vehicles like 401(k)s and IRAs. If tax rates go up, how much of your hard-earned money will you really get to keep?
     
    In this presentation, David McKnight lays out a step by step roadmap on how to get to the 0% tax bracket, effectively eliminating tax rate risk from your retirement picture. Why is the 0% tax bracket so powerful? Because if tax rates double, two times zero is still zero!
     
    The day of reckoning is fast approaching. Are you ready to do what it takes to experience the power of zero?
