51. Taxable vs. Non-Taxable Retirement Income -

Ray’s Take The taxable status of an investment account refers to whether any income earned in the account is taxable at the time of earning, or possibly not at all.

A good example would be a 401(k) or IRA. These accounts are considered tax-deferred because earned interest, dividends or capital gain distributions are not taxed until money is withdrawn – there is a payday someday. Other accounts, such as a cash account, high-interest savings accounts or non-qualified mutual fund accounts would be taxable in the year interest money is earned.
