<The more I read of this thread, the more I wonder why anyone would ever want to do it in the first place? Since there's no distribution requirement on a Roth IRA, there's no point in withdrawing money unless you are going to use it for some purpose. Shares of stock are not useful money--you need to sell them to use them. Thus what's the advantage? >There is one exception to this that I know of personally. Owners Of Record of Class A shares of Berkshire Hathaway get to decide (because of the shareholder-directed charitable-contributions program) to whom their share of the charitable contributions made by Berkshire Hathaway are to be paid. Shares only Beneficially Owned (in an IRA, Roth IRA, or 401(k) (if permitted)) are not so privileged. If you are only a beneficial owner of BRK.A stock, and you can avoid the tax consequences of getting it out of your IRA in some acceptable way, it is to your advantage to do so.
