Lane. One more question on the past "immediate

Hi Lane. One more question on the past "immediate annuity" question. The person receiving the distribution will be 53 at the time of distribution on 2/1/16 but will be 54 on 8/25/16. Her beneficiary will be 55 at time of distribution but will be 56 by the end of the year. Thanks so much again for everything......I'm so sorry. She will be 54 and he will be 55 (not 56) by the end of 2016. I'm not sure how much this matters but wanted you to know......Jamie

Lane. It's Jamie Eckard. I hope you had a great holiday

Hi Lane. It's Jamie Eckard. I hope you had a great holiday and New Year so far.- I have a financial adviser who asked me a question about one of his clients. I really want to help but don't know much about the question he has. It has to do with Rev Proc 72(t). The lady is 54 years old and wants to withdraw from one of her IRA's in SEPP (substantially equal periodic payments). She wants to take out $48,000/year for 10 years (this total is based on her life expectancy table) for a total of $480,000 but the present value of the IRA money she wants to use is $433,000.- The client has a total IRA balance of $1,100,000 but this is spread over several IRA's.- Does Rev Proc 72(t) apply to the total amount she has in "ALL" of her IRA's or does it just apply "ONLY" to the specific IRA she is pulling the $480,000 (PV $433,000) from over the 10 years.- I really don't have any experience with this and the guy just ask the question yesterday and needs some help by noon tomorrow so I wanted to get your opinion.- His company is pushing back on him about the using the total value of "ALL" IRA's so I'm trying to find him some verbiage or revenue rulings where he can use the "TOTAL" value of all IRA's in his calculation.- As always, thanks so much for any help you can provide in advance.- Thanks, ***** *****

I just bought a home with a 288k mortgage and monthly

I just bought a home with a 288k mortgage and monthly payments of $1800 (starting 7/1), and a car that has monthly payments of $461 ($27,000 debt). I'm considering buying my second car now within a week of buying the 1st car and the payments would be around$650 ($38,000 debt). The only other vehicle I'm paying for is $224 for a mcycle. With a yearly income of 128k, my questions are - 1. Is is a good idea to buy the second car before my first payment for the 1st car? 2. My take-home pay is about 6k/mo, is buyingthe 2nd car a good idea at all? Maybe i buy it and exchange the 1st one for a cheaper car at a small depreciation cost? 3. Is selling a car before the first monthly payment a bad idea?
