I am 63. I have an IRA with contains funds rolled over from a company IRA plan and my SEP-IRA contributions. This IRA is just in money market funds at the moment. I want to invest in dividend-paying stocks.

However...Dividends would normally be taxed at 15%, I think, whereas distributions will be taxed at the usual income tax rates. Is there a way to keep the lower rate?
