Customer Question
I have a regular...

I have a regular IRA $40, and want to confirm what a State Emp Credit Union told me. I paid $160, for my NC home and am considering buying a house for $235, in WVa. I owe $30, on my NC home. My goal is to not have a mortgage pmt at the next home. DOB ***********, I will be 70.5 Dec 2019. Question: Can I apply some or all of the IRA money towards purchase of the WVa home now without tax/penalties? I was told I have a big cushion before I'm liable for Capital Gains and I should be able to withdrawal from the IRA if it's applied directly towards the new purchase. What do you think?

Accountant's Assistant: The Expert will know how to help. Is there anything else the Expert should be aware of?

I am retired, single & only dependent is a dog :):) Only income is SS 1,544. mo. Have nearly $12,000 in credit card debt (0% int). I have recently settled w/ NC over a broken leg with $$ are non taxable.

Welcome to JustAnswer! My name is***** ® professional.

Any funds withdrawn from a traditional IRA are included in your ordinary income and taxed at your current ordinary income tax rate.

You may have a cushion as a single tax payer to exclude gains up to $250,000 on your federal taxes for a primary residence if you meet all the requirements.
