Some Pension Fallacies Debunked (PDF)

"Tax deferrals enable business owners and employees at all compensation levels to retain control of income that is otherwise paid to IRS for its use. Assuming a 6.0% annually compounded discount rate, $1 paid to a pension plan at age 40 rather than paid to IRS in taxes has a discounted value of $.23 when taxed as a pension distribution at age 65 for an immediate $.77 profit. Or, that $1 pays $4.29 of taxes on retirement income at age 65. This clearly debunks the notion that tax deferrals from a pension plan are of little or no value because taxes are ultimately paid on distributions at retirement."
