Re: ER Forum 2005 Yearly Gross Income Survey

Hmmm

As close to zero or slightly negative as a disaster loss plus a Roth conversion will allow. In a normal year - try to 'adjust' my ER income to hit 25-30k - cause of file single - low tax bracket and all that.

However - the don't let the dog wag the tail theory says - take cap gain if it needs to be taken - even short term(yuch!) - haven't had to recently.

heh heh heh

Those who are still working as lawyers, doctors, business owners, corporate executives, stock brokers, I think.

Re: ER Forum 2005 Yearly Gross Income Survey

I am a little surprised that 3 others have joined us under 30K.
BTW, DW pays income taxes but I do not. As I recall,
some here thought that was not quite right.
