How much will my investment be worth?

The value of your investment can be affected by both taxes and inflation. Use this calculator to estimate the year-by-year and total effects of taxes and inflation on your investment. This calculator assumes that taxes are paid on investment earnings each year. Retirement plan earnings may be tax-deferred or, for qualified Roth account withdrawals, tax-free.

The calculator deducts income taxes from earnings on an annual basis using the income tax rates that you specify. This will tend to understate the performance of the taxable account in circumstances where long-term capital gains and qualified dividends, which are currently taxed at lower rates than ordinary income, are a component of investment returns, as is the case for investments with significant equity holdings.
