However, all hope is not lost when it comes to keeping Uncle Sam away from your hard-earned dollars. A relatively new type of account originally meant for paying for healthcare and insurance is being adopted in spades as a retirement planning tool. A tool that comes with plenty of tax deferral benefits. If you haven’t considered an HAS, the time could be now.
