re: Contribute to an IRA or not - Dreamweaver on 6/6/13 at 7:40 pm
I'll answer that for you, it's tracked on IRS Form 8606. It's called your "basis" in the IRA, this has no relation to cost basis. When you withdraw funds from the IRA, a pro-rata portion of the withdrawal will not be considered taxable and that amount will go to reduce your basis, until eventually...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: taxing the rich...estate tax - Dreamweaver on 1/20/13 at 12:09 pm
[quote]Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but is the estate tax different then any other income taxes? IE is the tax only paid on the amount over the exempted amount? So if you have a 30% tax rate on estates over 5 million and your estate is 5.5 million, you would only be paying the 30% on half a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]What ever happened to the roll forward on the capital basis when a person dies? It used to be that the capital gains were wiped out and the new basis for the heirs was the value at the time of death. In a way, the estate tax was an offset to the loss of the capital gains tax. I believe there ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: SEC scheduling question - Dreamweaver on 11/8/12 at 9:00 am
Because we are one conference, not a conference with two separate sets of teams (Bama, Tenn, AU, UGA)and the rest. The whole football scheduling mess is the reason I was so opposed to conference expansion (not to mention what it does to scheduling/tournament structure in other sports). 12 was su...

re: Fumble recovery after play is blown dead - Dreamweaver on 10/7/12 at 7:32 am
So anytime a ball hits the turf even after a play has been declared dead, players should just assume it was a fumble and jump all over it. Not only is that stupid, but someone is gonna get seriously hurt in that situation. I thought the NCAA was looking out for player safety, after all that's why ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Fumble recovery after play is blown dead - Dreamweaver on 10/6/12 at 6:06 pm

re: IRA to Roth IRA - Dreamweaver on 9/21/12 at 3:51 pm
You would be able to convert the whole amount since a conversion is not the same as a contribution. You could do the conversion and also a contribution in the same year as long as you are within the AGI limits for a Roth contribution this year ( there are no AGI limits on conversions right now)...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: IRA to Roth IRA - Dreamweaver on 9/21/12 at 12:04 pm
What you are talking about doing is called a conversion, and if you do it you will be responsible for taxes on the $5900 if you were entitled to and took the deduction for the original traditional IRA contribution(s). IMHO, its a smart move as long as you can pay the taxes with money that you have...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
