Retirement Plan Withdrawal

Withdrawing money from a qualified retirement plan, such as a Traditional IRA, 401(k) or 403(b) plan, among others, can create a sizable tax obligation. If you are under 59 ½ you may also be subject to a 10% early withdrawal penalty. Use this calculator to see what your net withdrawal would be after taxes and penalties are taken into account.

While this calculator can provide you with some insight, it was developed to be very general and may not fit everyone’s personal situation. Please feel free to contact our office after using this calculator so that we can perform a more thorough analysis.

Definitions

Amount to withdraw
The amount you wish to withdraw from your qualified retirement plan. Withdrawals are subject to income tax and prior to age 59-1/2 may also be subject to a 10% additional tax penalty. There are some exceptions to the penalty. Consult a tax advisor for more information. For this calculation we assume that all contributions to the retirement account were made on a pre-tax or tax deductible basis. If you made contributions that were subject to income taxes, you may not owe taxes on the entire withdrawal. You should consult your tax or legal advisor concerning your particular situation.

Current age
Your current age.

Federal income tax rate
Consult the table below to determine your federal tax bracket. If you are unsure, the calculator will choose 25%. Please note that state taxes are entered in a separate entry field.
