As the year comes to a close, we also want to take a moment to express our gratitude for the retirement stories that we’ve been able to be a part of in 2023. We’re taking a few week break for the holidays, but are so excited to continue bringing you valuable podcast and YouTube content in 2024. Wishing you a safe and happy time with your loved ones!

Here are the questions we discuss in this episode:

  • Can you explain more about tax harvesting? I sold two individual stocks last month. Both are a loss, but I don’t know how I can take advantage of this loss.
  • I was just laid off. I am past full retirement age and the Roth side of my 401k hits 5 years on the 1st of 2024. Can I withdrawal from the Roth 401K side without tax consequences after 2023?
  • The 401k plan has pre-tax and post-tax (Roth). Is withholding required on post-tax Roth 401k money?
