  • Start IRA Conversions Early To Have More Purchasing Power Later [View article]
    Thank you very much for your article which provides a great starting point . Folks seriously thinking about a conversion should seek some professional advice. Two more items for the mix. As you pointed out, Roths can reduce exposure to the taxability of SS earnings. Once the MRDs from a regular IRA are added to any other income or pension, the IRS limit can be reached causing taxes on some of the SS benefits. Additionally, there is a higher income surcharge on both Medicare B and prescription benefits. Conversion of bonds in kind from an IRA to a Roth may allow the transfer of accrued interest without any tax on the interest, which can provide a small bonus. Again, interested folks should get some personalized advice. Thanks again for your article and please keep your readers informed.

  • 8%+ Yielding REIT Preferreds: The Best Of The Best - Part 1 [View article]
    Thanks for your very good article. I have also had much success with these issues, and continue to hold the C issues of them. Like TAS, I have also sold many other preferreds issued by other companies. I hold also redeployed into individual high yield corporate bonds selling around or slightly above par, and with maturities of four -five years or less. I would rather be a creditor than a shareholder for time being. Please continue to advise as to your opinion on preferreds.

  • Figuring Out When You Can Retire [View article]
    Your approach is a good start, but will not protect them from the taxability of their SS once they begin to earn income on non retirement funds, and mandatory withdrawals from their non Roth accounts. Thanks.
