What are the tax advantages of an annuity?

Your initial contract purchase payment into an annuity is not tax-deductible, however you don't have to pay taxes on the interest earned until you begin making withdrawals. This tax-deferral period can have a dramatic affect on the growth of an annuity. Use this calculator to compare the tax advantages of an annuity versus an account where the interest is taxed each year such as a CD.
