The TurboTax Blog

As we get more comfortable with our finances, we’re looking for ways to improve our financial system, which includes our retirement plans.

So far we’ve been basing our plans on an estimate we did a few years ago. However, after reading some books on determining a better calculation for how much one needs for their retirement nest egg, I decided to refine our plans.
