This is not about “finding a tax loophole.” Rather, we are pointing out one option that people with large cashflows — such as business owners who annually make a large payment to the IRS
Nothing in recent years has convinced me more of this fact than attempting to explain the Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) to others. When I consider the number of years it took me to finally understand it, I wonder if its simplicity is not perhaps the real source of its difficulty.
Control of your money: When you contribute to a qualified plan, the government, the retirement plan administrator and/or the employer, determines what you can invest in, how much you can invest depending on your age and/or income, when you can withdraw it, and what taxes and fees you’ll pay for withdrawing earlier. Of course, the government can and does change the rules!
When you contribute to an IBC policy, you and only you, are in control of your money. You determine how much to contribute to your policy, limited only by its design, and you determine when and how much you can withdraw or borrow from your policy. The insurance company that issues your IBC policy cannot change these rules!
“Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Hoping your Thanksgiving is filled with blessings and joy!”
When you take a policy loan, the money does not come from the cash value of your Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) policy, but from the general account of the insurance company, and your cash value remains in your policy earning interest and dividends.
Also relevant to this article is this perspective. According to the Tax Policy Center roughly 80 percent (of revenue for the federal government) comes from the individual income tax and the payroll taxes that fund the social insurance programs.

Within this quote by Adam Smith resides the
fundamental premise for the creation of the IBC
Practitioner Program for financial professionals.
Infinite Banking is an economic concept developed by Nelson Nash. It is based on the principle that you “finance” everything you buy, since you either pay interest to someone else or if you pay cash, you give up interest you could have earned. IBC is all about how to create your own banking system so you can control 100% of your financing needs.
If you purchase an Infinite Banking policy to create sustainable wealth, you must think and act all the time as a banker to obtain optimal results. The best way to reach that state is to read and reread Nelson Nash’s “Becoming Your Own Banker”.
