Subject:  Ira withdrawals and SSN taxes Date:  7/23/1999  10:58 PM

Has anybody looked into the tax consequences of postponing IRA withdrawals and the effect on your taxes? The longer you wait, the bigger your withdrawals are and the bigger your income. The net effect is your taxes are higher, and the taxes can actually offset your social security checks. Little byline in the WSJ the other day said record number of people on SSN being taxed. Any thoughts/spreadsheets?
