I want to withdraw some (not all) funds from my IRA and open a second one with another broker. The new broker tells me to allow about 15 days for them to do this. I'm not that patient.

Question: Can I simply withdraw from acct #1 and mail a check to acct #2 along with my application? I can do all this in less than a week. I don't want to create a "taxable event".

Thanks to all!
