I don't think it will be hard in my case since I keep a couple years of expenses in cash/ST bonds so no tax implication of withdrawing from them and for my taxable portfolio my basis should approximate fair value going into 2014 because I plan to harvest gains at 0% CG rate in 2013.

If you're talking about withdrawals from tax-deferred, then totally different dilemma.

If something cannot endure laughter.... it cannot endure.
Patience is the art of concealing your impatience.
Slow and steady wins the race.

OK, the form is 21 pages but 12 of that is repeated, 2 pages for each applicant for personal info, 6 included in the form. 2 pages ask about current insurance, 2 pages apply only if you're american indian. You're done on page 18, the rest is instructions. It looks like I would have 5 pages to complete, I guess 6 if you count the signature page. Looks a lot easier than filling out one for individual HI and getting rejected.

If someone has trouble with a 1040EZ I guess this might be a problem.
