So inflation has been about 5% per year over those 35 years. 3 Personal Taxes If we keep our money P0 in an interest bearing account at an annual effective rate of ieff , then after one year we have P0 (1 + ieff ). Thus, our pre-tax profit that year is ieff P0 . 4 Thus, the actual after-tax amount we have available to re-invest the second year is P1 = P0 (1 + ieff ) − ieff P0 t = P0 (1 + ieff − ieff t).
