I will be "retiring" out of an old pension plan I have in a few weeks, which will pay a monthly amount of about $1,200, which will be taxable income. Unfortunately, I'm in a high tax bracket, but can't put the money into a deferred account, as I will need the funds for my kids' college expenses starting in about 4 - 5 years and am about 15 years away from being old enough to really retire. So, what to do?? I was thinking of buying a tax exempt mutual fund, adding the $1,200 or so every month, so at least I wouldn't be taxed on the income. Or, maybe a zero coupon bond. Anybody have a better idea??

Thanks!!

Isaac
