2014 will be the first year I have to take an RMD. I am not having taxes withheld as I plan to consult part time and continue to fund my solo 401k. I'll continue to pay estimated taxes quarterly as I have over the last 15 years. My RMD will be my annual WR for the foreseeable future (we have a nice SS base also).
With no debt, two paid for houses and a nice chunk in our taxable accounts, we will also have the potential to leave a large legacy amount, unless some unforeseen medical issue(s) rears its ugly head.
Where can I find one of those bumper stickers that says......We're spending our kids inheritance!
