If you withdraw money from a tax exempt money market account will that trigger a taxable event? I am in the 33% bracket and want cover my bases.
=====================================
I'll assume it's in a personal, (not an IRA or other retirement or other tax-advantaged) account, and it normally wouldn't be.

So if it's just a money market fund, and the share price has been managed to be a constant $1/share, then no, the withdrawal should not have tax consequences.
