Hello All,

Anybody know of resources that discuss strategies for spending your Roth as opposed to acquiring it? I know the general rule for taking distributions is

1.) Taxable Accounts
2.) Traditional IRA Accounts
3.) Roth IRA Accounts

However, like all general rules there may be exceptions based on circumstance. My main question right now is if it would make sense to use some Roth monies to manage tax brackets?

Fool on and thanks for any guidance.
