A third possibility for taxes as mentioned in another post is withholding the entire amount of taxes for the full $15K from the RMD. That would be really great if your brokerage would do that.

That would be easy at my broker. When I make a withdrawal from my IRA I specify a percent goes to the feds, another percent that goes to the state. As far as I know I could make them add up to 100% if I chose to. If I ever have to do a quarterly payment that's how I figure on doing it with no paperwork. (I am years from RMD. When I did a conversion to my ROTH I had to talk with them on the phone because I wanted taxes held out - their default was no withholding on a conversion.)
