IRA withdrawals increase the tax on SS
Let's get real here.
For MFJ, SS is not taxed if your taxable income is below $32,000
Between $32K & $44K it's taxed 50%.
Above $44K it's taxed 85%.
Unless you retire dirt-poor, your SS is going to be taxed at 85%.
Do you *really* want to have such a low income? And, heck, if you have to get a job as Walmart greeter, you're going to be pushed over the threshold.
