Thank you reply. The situation I am in is that I have been

Thank you for your reply. The situation I am in is that I have been laid off. I have little in my 401K A & B parts, around 22K. Wondering if I should move it to an IRA and then donate portion of it? Or Donate it right from the 401K I know I will be hit with taxes pulling it out of the 401K. and can use the itemization from the charitable donation. However trying to figure it out what is best. I am only 50. So waiting is until 70.5 is not an option. I also want to pull some as well for living expense right now.

I would like to legally get my AGI as low as possible when I

I would like to legally get my AGI as low as possible when I file my 2015 tax return to maximize health care insurance premiums etc. I use Turbo Tax to prepare my own taxes. The two main ways I can get my AGI down is by contributing to my HSA and Sep IRA. I need to find out how much to contribute to either or both of those before say Dec 20th to give me time to make the contributions by 12/31. Two questions:1) Do you know how soon prior to 12/31 Turbo Tax would sell the 2015 me the federal software so I can plug in all the known and projected numbers?2) If I contribute to Sep IRA and / or HSA by 12/31 when will they send me the 1099's?

I have a company in Florida with a very nice retail space

I have a company in Florida with a very nice retail space and I would like to transition my inventory to more of a high end souveneer category with the introduction of embroidered shirts and other monogrammed/embroidered clothing items I have a supplierfor in Panama. I would like to better understand the perks/pitfalls with importing good from panama for resale in the U.S. Specifically, I need to know how products that are made in China (t-shirts) but that are embroidered/assembled in Panama in some instancesby indegenous indian tribes which double the value of the item before it is shipped to the US for retail sale are considered for taxation and whether they can legally be considered made in Panama with a certain percentage of assembly having occurred there.I know there is a FTA between Panama and the US that allows for products to be rebranded to change their import taxation when they have a certain percentage of work or assembly completed in Panama. Additionally, It would help me to know about any problemsor delays attributed to customs I may encounter importing clothing items from Panama for resale in the US.
