No. of Recommendations: 0
I've recently figured out that I should keep my one and only mutual fund and and dividend paying stocks in my IRA and have my growth stocks in my taxable acct(which I don't have yet).

The problem: My oldest child just received a great financil aid package for his first year of college. It is my understanding that monies in an IRA are not looked at but monies in a taxable acct would be looked at. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I should let my investments ride in my IRA until all my kids are out of college. If at that time I wish to open a taxable acct for growth stocks I'd be better off later rather than sooner.

Thanks in advance for your input, m
