JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I cashed in retirement of 16K and withheld 20%. I'm under 59 so I'm gonna get hit with the extra 10% penalty. Biggest question is will this bump me into next tax bracket? for instance, If Im at 80K income now, plus the withdrawal of 16K, will that mean that i will get hit for higher taxes on the 80k since it will bump me into the 28% tax bracket? I haven't taken out extra taxes against my regular income, so I'm afraid this will crush me financially.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Tax Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Q: If Im at 80K income now, plus the withdrawal of 16K, will that mean that i will get hit for higher taxes on the 80k since it will bump me into the 28% tax bracket?

A: As the distributed amount is added to ordinary income, the 16k will put you in the 28% tax bracket, and as you stated, you are going to get hit with the early withdrawal penalty as well, unless you meet an exception. There are exceptions that can exempt taxpayers to the 10% early withdrawal penalty. What type of retirement vehicle did you make the withdrawal from?

I had it sitting in a money market it was 401k, not deferred tax account. You mean to say I will now get hit for the following:
essentially 96K at 28%
plus 10% penalty on the 16k?
Tax Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Tax Accountant replied 1 year ago

Sorry, but yes, regarding the 28% tax bracket if you file single, and if you don't meet an exception, the additional 10% penalty as well.

If you meet any of the exceptions shown on the page at the following link (Yes--under the 401k), you will not have to pay the 10% early withdrawal penalty. If you do meet an exception, you will need to complete Form 5329 to show that you qualify for an exception.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter. If all is clear, please be so kind as to positively rate my response so that I may receive credit for assisting you.

I have a retirement income question. 5 years ago I retired
5 years ago I retired and moved to New York. I receive two retirement checks, one from the San Francisco Fire Department and one from California Public Employees Retirement system. Last year I found out that my checks were still having Calif. State income tax removed yet I was paying NY State income tax. I was being double taxed. So I had the retirement agencies stop withholding CA tax. I researched the issue and found that the 1995, Public Law 104-95 made it illegal for states to tax retirement income of individuals no longer residing in their state. Now my tax preparer says I owe tax for NY and for CA. She says it is a part of her tax program and it asks for an accounting of any "income earned as a non-resident derived from California?" When she puts our earned amount in that box she says the program says we owe CA $1,800, yet we are paying NY a similar amount. Can CA tax my retirement income even though I don't live there? … read more
