As we all know, there are many tips and tricks to maximizing the tax code in the short-term at tax time and in long-term with your retirement account. However, when a loophole is being used by "too many" and the government is losing out on lost revenue, it has a good chance of being closed.

Liz Weston spoke to Ed Slott about 3 retirement loopholes that are in danger. They are:

  1. The backdoor Roth IRA conversion
  2. The stretch IRA
  3. "Aggressive" strategies for Social Security
