L2: starting SEPP mid year.Activity before you start a SEPP 72-T does not matter.As a matter of fact, use the reverse calculation on this website to determine the balance that you will need for the desired annual distributions. Then move the account excess to another account for use in the future for emergencies,or a 2nd SEPP 72-T.2010-06-27 21:58, By: dlzallestaxes, IP: []

L3: starting SEPP mid year.dlz is correct.When you move the funds, you should use a direct TT transfer. If you move the funds by an indirect rollover, you will exhaust your permitted one rollover per 12 months for the account that distributes the funds AND the account that receives the funds. You should preserve the option for doing an indirect rollover for your SEPP plan.For example, if you or your institution distributes too much, you can roll the funds back to the IRA and prevent a busted SEPP. But if you exhausted that rollover before your plan even began, you would be out of luck.2010-06-28 01:58, By: Alan S., IP: []
