Good post, Phil, one with which I can agree. You are in the 15% bracket? Our planning for 2007 was that we would be in the 15% bracket. Then DW went nuts and sold a bunch of drapery (She is an interior decorator - designer if you prefer that word) and we wound up in the 28% bracket. Life is so unfair. I was planning to take a large withdrawal from my IRA and convert to Roth, but as the poet said, "The best laid plans ..." So for 2008 I am in RMD land. Actually, I would love for her to get really nutso and put us in the 33% bracket. But, why be a a piker? Why not 35%
