Mr Marti,

I searched through the 90 pages of Publication 590 and could not find reference to the 60 day window resulting in no penalties.

For purposes of clarification, if I were to sell stock in my SEP, it would not be for a rollover purpose. You are correct in assuming I would be taking the cash out from the sale.

The purpose of this ironically, is to pay my estimated qtry tax (apprx $3000)that comes due Jan 15th. I have funds coming to me in Feb that will cover this so I can simply buy $3000 worth of stock in my SEP at that point to reimburse what I withdrew.

If I understand you, this transaction would result in no penalties or capitol gains tax requirements.

Is there a better way, i.e. delaying my qrtly tax payment until Feb and pay a late fee?
