Re: Withdrawing from which account (retirees only)

I still am collecting royalty income from some of my books, but the rest comes from taxable accounts.

Re: Withdrawing from which account (retirees only)


I have no earned income. But my investments generate enough "unearned" income to disqualify me from doing any IRA conversions to Roth. This "unearned" income also uses up all my tax deductions and any additional "allowances" seem to disappear most years.


Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
