re: 401k Traditional vs Roth 401k vs Post-86 - dlmast87
My understanding is the Roth 401k and regular 401k contributions combined count towards the 18,000 limit for 401k's. You could still contribute the max 5500 to a Roth IRA if you're under the income limit. The Roth 401k has no income limit so it let's people above the income limit on a regular Roth c...

re: Roth IRA and earned income - dlmast87
Thanks, I'll look into it. However, since my wife and I both have Roth 401k (403b in her case) options, I think we'll work towards maxing those out first. :cheers:...

Here's what we did after consulting with Vanguard.....recharacterized our 2016 and 2017 contributions to a traditional IRA and will pull out our 2015 contributions and just get a check from Vanguard. Not sure what we're going to do with the cash. We do have to pay a 6% penalty for 2015. I thought ab...

re: Roth IRA and earned income - dlmast87
Thanks for the reply. It looks like we weren't allowed to contribute in '15 or '16 but did (also contributing now, but I will stop further contributions). Any suggestions on where we can put the money once we sort out the tax/penalty issues for contributing when we weren't supposed to? Can that mone...

Roth IRA and earned income - dlmast87
My wife is a part owner in a family business and I am wondering if we as a household are making too much money to contribute to our Roths. LLC - she owns 25% of the company. The profit at the end of the year is evenly split among the 4 shareholders and shows up on our 1040 and adds to our AGI how...

re: Educate me on Garage Door Openers. Not Tech, but some is...... - dlmast87
I just put in 3 Liftmaster 8550W's and they are pretty sweet as far as garage door openers go. I would recommend a belt drive since it'll be super quiet and you shouldn't have issues going from chain to belt. These have DC battery backup and wifi connectivity. There's no subscription needed for t...

re: New to stock market, advice on my purchases, advice in general - dlmast87
Maybe start by looking at the products you have around your house. What do you buy on a consistent basis or what companies do you like? That's the best place to start in my opinion....companies that you're comfortable with. Don't just take a shot in the dark and hope.....unless you want to gamble...
