Customer Question

I have a large non-refundable tax credit for 2015 that is not refundable for adopting 3 children. Can I still make a withdraw now from my IRA and have it count towards my 2015 income in order to take advantage of this credit?

While it is true that a taxpayer is given to April 2016 to make a contribution to an IRA and have it count as a 2015 contributions, withdrawals are not extended into the next year.

In other words, unless you make a withdrawal by Dec 31 of 2015 then you cannot count a distribution from your IRA as happening in 2015.

I hope you realize I am only telling you the rules and sincerely ***** ***** you hoped for was true.

I know rating takes an additional step and I truly appreciate it when you take the extra time!
