You Asked Us... and We Answered

  • I would like to take 72(t) payments from my 401(k) plan, but I have received conflicting information as to whether this can be done from a retirement account that is not an IRA.  What is the right answer?

     

  • I have about $250,000 in a traditional IRA, and want to convert the amount to a Roth IRA. However, converting the entire balance will push me in a higher tax bracket, and I cannot afford to pay all the taxes that will be owed in one year.  I do not want to pay the taxes owed with my IRA funds, but instead prefer to pay it out of pocket (with non-IRA funds). Can I convert portions of that $250,000 traditional IRA over a period of several years?
