I recently left an employer and received a distribution from the pension plan which I rolled into a Rollover 401k. I quickly jumped on the chance to invest in individual stocks instead of funds. Now, my question is, what if I decide to withdraw the money. I am 32 so I know I will pay the 10% penalty, but I was wondering how the money was taxed. Do long term or short term rates apply? I assume short but I havne't looked into the details yet. Can anyone shed any light? Thanks
