[[ There is plenty of tax information on all sorts of IRAs, 401K and "normal"
annuity, but I have trouble finding any tax advices on commercial (non-qualified)
I guess I'm not sure what you mean by a "non-qualified" annuity. "non-qualified" in what sense. I'm not a life or annuity sales person, so I get a little hazy when when we get into "insurance speak".
[[ Am I stuck with my annuity in Prudential Security or there is a way to transfer it
somewhere or rollover like IRA without paying penalty for early withdrawals
and taxes on earnings? I don't mean brokarage penalty, just IRS.]]
If this is a "commercial" annuity, it is my understanding that you may be able to transfer it to another annuity using a Code Section 1035 exahcnge. But since this annuity is not currently in an IRA account, there is no way that I know of that you could move this annuity to an IRA (either Roth or regular).
[[ All advises will be greatly appreciated.]]
