My company has done very well over the past couple of years,

My company has done very well over the past couple of years, and I hold stock in it. My financial advisor has told me I need to sell some of that stock. These are restricted stock units (RSUs) which are part of my compensation. I'm afraid that selling the stock will trigger AMT. It will likely amount to approx. $500,000 capital gain. Will this be a problem?

Im on long term disability. I have two blocks of money. One

I'm on long term disability. I have two blocks of money. One is a retirement fund and the other is my 401k. These are currently being managed by my former employer. I've heard that I can withdraw my pension fund without penalty except for taxes. I'm 52 years old single but my home is shared with my ex partner. We both reside in the home with his mother.One option I was considering was to pay off my the home loan. Not having that monthly payment would be a great relief. But, it would also be a risk for my retirement fund. Currently, my 401k is invested in the stock market. That makes me very nervous. Its only now that my 401k has gotten close to what it was pre-stock drop. But, putting that money in an IRA making basically no interest doesn't seem wise at all.I definitely want the pension money away from my employer. The 401k I'm not sure about. Currently that money is in a age-driven fund. As I get older, the investment shifts to less risky options.Sorry, I know that's a lot of questions. Thanks for your help.

I need to speak with an accountant who is able to answer questions about S-corps.JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.Customer: Our company became an S Corp. legally in February 2016. There are only two shareholders at 50-50 (my husband and my son). They each took a wage of $25,000 for the year. We bought TurboTax for S corps and I had a question. Unfortunately I have not been filing quarterly wage reports. However I do have all the tax money saved in the bank to send to the government and the state. So my question is, do I give my husband and son each a W-2? To report their wage of 25,000? Even though I haven't paid the government does Social Security taxes yet. I was hoping to just pay them NOW at the end of the year since I didn't realize I needed to do it quarterly.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?Customer: TurboTax is allowing us to create either 1099s or W-2s ( One for my son and one for my husband).
