New tax law helps save money A new tax law helps you save money with your personal retirement fund. This new tax shelter is designed for people who are not covered by other qualified pension plans. It allows you to put aside 15 per cent of your income-up to $1500 a year—in a tax-deferred Individual Retirement Account (IRA). You don't pay taxes on your IRA funds—or the dividends, interest or other earnings they generate—until you retire. At that time most of us are in a lower tax bracket. Your Country Companies agent has a variety of ways to fund your IRA plan. Talk to him soon to find out how you can build a retirement fund and defer taxes at the same time. The Country Companies. We're a little different than most insurance people.
