When it comes to taxes, we tend to focus on our federal liabilities, but remember that Uncle Sam is not the only one with his hands in your pocket.  Here’s a good example:  The state of California just raised its gas tax again … even though the state has a $75 billion budget surplus this year!  Is it unreasonable to hope that … sooner or later … we might see our taxes go down, instead of up?

What comes to mind when you hear the word “retirement”?  Most of us probably think about all the things we want to do when we quit working – like take a fancy vacation, or maybe play a lot of golf.  But a survey by the management firm Voya found that people are also thinking more about how they’re going to pay for those things.
