Dollars & Sense: Why Parents are Still Paying for their Adult Children's Costs

Dollars & Sense: Why Parents are Still Paying for their Adult Children's Costs

April 20, 2023

With tax season officially over (phew!), we wanted to shed some light on some of the most commonly asked tax questions we received this past week. We also dive into an uncomfortable topic that many families are faced with. A recent study by came out this week that showed 68% of retirees have made a financial sacrifice to help their adult children with money. This is a reality for so many of our clients and listeners. Given the choice to cut back on your retirement lifestyle so that your children could have a better financial life, would you do it? Or do you feel that you should live your retirement to the fullest and whatever money is left over will go to your kids? 

Tune in to this week’s episode of Dollars & Sense as Marc and Marion discuss some of the most commonly asked questions from taxpayers and how more and more retirees are supporting their adult children in a language you can understand.
