Wouldn't you have the same taxes if your retirement income matched your pre-retirement income?? Not necessarily because it depends where that retirement income comes from. For instance, if it all comes from tax-deferred accounts like a 401k or IRA, then you will have to pay ordinary taxes on it, and so it will be about the same as pre-retirement.But some folks, me included, have a lot of retirement savings in taxable accounts, and so anything that comes out of selling stock from those accounts is taxed at more favorable capital gains rates.
