Author's Note: 10 Tax Deductions for Retirees

Remember that Roth IRAs allow you to receive nontaxable income when you're retired. (That's because you're being taxed on the money when you contribute it.) So, if you want to receive more money without having to pay more taxes on Social Security, consider taking the bulk of your income from Roth withdrawals. They won't count toward the combined income that is used to determine the percentage of Social Security taxation.
