I left my employment 14 months ago, but I still have a 401k plan with the company.
I have not rolled it over, and it has grown decently. I am considering an early withdrawal or a roll over. I need part of the money liquid for expenses, and part to day trade out of.
I have several questions re: income tax, etc.
1. Since I have not worked in 2014, what tax bracket would I be subject to?
2. Since I have filed jointly every year with my wife, should I consider filing separately (would that lower my tax penalty for early withdrawal)? I understand I"d have the 10% penalty additionally.
3. If I did decide to liquidate it, should I wait until January (is it true that I'd have the money for essentially 16 months before having to pay taxes on it?)
4. If I roll it over and day trade out of it, do I have access to the profits without penalty (I know that is not a tax question).
