Yes, I thought it was interesting as well. Reading about all those wringing their hands over RMDs makes me wonder how many people have actually looked at the RMD tables. For example, you don't have to take out more than 6% until age 83.

but 6% of a zillion is a lot!

I've often said that if RMDs force me into paying higher taxes than I'm deferring now, I'll be very lucky indeed :)


if the RMD is big enough .. your SS gets 'fully' taxed, you might have to pay the extra for Meidcare, might even hit AMT -- so it CAN be much worse than just a higher bracket.
