I asked and was kindly told by other, smarter fools than I that on retirement, I can roll over my 401(k) to an IRA, except the company stock in the 401(k), which should be placed in a taxable brokerage account. Will I be taxed for an early withdrawal of the stock from the 401(k)? I will be retiring at age 54.I don't plan to sell the stock for another five years or longer after I retire. I know the business about how the capital gains will be treated in this scenario, but I am unsure about the early withdrawl penalty.
