|Subject: withdrawal of contributions from Roth IRA||Date: 8/5/2013 12:29 PM|
|Author: StoppedClock||Number: 118972 of 119666|
I have a need for about $20,000.
My Roth IRA has a balance of $126K. Of this, $24K is my original contributions, the rest is gains (lucky me!). My contributions were made between 1999 and 2009.
My understanding is that I can withdraw my contributions with no tax consequences. In my case, this could be up to $24K.
Is there anything that I need to watch out for before I make the withdrawal? It feels weird taking money out of an IRA; I've never done that before.
Thanks in advance!
