Insider Buying and Selling by Quarter for AVX (NYSE:AVX)

Look out, taxes from an IRA can sneak up on you

Due to the standard deduction and personal exemptions, every taxpayer has an amount of income they can receive at no taxation. The first tax bracket above the tax-free amount is just 10% but it doesn’t take a huge amount of taxable income to increase taxes more than one would expect.

Q.: Dan, I turn 63 next month. I have been on Social Security Disability since 53 or 10 years. It’s my only source of income. I currently get $2,131 monthly or $26,000 annually. I just received a lump sum check of my pension plan which is $183,000, made out to me and my IRA provider. I want $50,000 cash so I can purchase a home with the remaining $133,000 to go into my IRA. How much will I have to pay in taxes?

Secondly, I would like to attempt to go back to work for four years. It’s my understanding that I can continue to receive my Social Security Disability and reenter the workforce for up to four years. I will then be 67. Full retirement age is 66 in regards to Social Security. Is this advisable?

Greg

A: Greg, once you deposit the $183,000 into the IRA, you can take a distribution. I’m sure you expect the $50,000 to be taxable but the taxes caused will be higher than you may think.

Currently, since the $26,000 from Social Security is your sole income, none of it is taxable. In your case, as soon as the total of taxable income from the IRA and half your Social Security exceeds $25,000, part of your Social Security payments become taxable. As the total "combined income" exceeds $34,000, up to 85% of the Social Security payments become taxable. A $50,000 taxable IRA distribution creates $72,100 of gross income ($50,000 + 85% of $26,000).

Read: Roth or traditional IRA? For max contributors its no contest

Take your gross income of $72,100 and subtract your deductions and exemptions to get your taxable income. If your 2017 taxable income exceeds $37,950, your tax bill will be $5,226 plus 25% of taxable income over $37,950.

Social Security has a strict definition of disability. Generally, returning to work prior to full retirement age will make you ineligible but there are exceptions so you should probably consult an attorney who is well versed in Social Security Disability matters. At your full retirement age, your benefits are automatically converted to your retirement benefit so the disability eligibility issue becomes moot.

Best Dividend Stocks To Invest In 2019

General Electric Co. (GE) is poised to miss first-quarter earnings and the Boston-based industrial conglomerate’s dividend isn’t safe, a Cowen analyst said Wednesday in a research note.

“We expect the upcoming accounting restatement and [first-quarter] print to continue to pressure this ‘show me’ stock,” analyst Gautam Khanna wrote. “We don’t believe the $0.48 per year dividend is safe unless ‘contract assets’ convert to cash on a net basis, and/or the power market rebounds sharply and soon.”

The analyst added that a first-quarter earnings-per-share miss “appears probable,” as lower pricing and falling turbine deliveries will likely hinder profits at GE’s power unit. Khanna now estimates earnings at 8 cents per share for the first period vs. the 12-cent consensus that most analysts are expecting.

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Own Right Now

Money managers who are reducing their bullish bets on oil are following a “dangerous” strategy, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

Demand will remain strong and concerns over economic growth will probably prove temporary, analysts including Jeffrey Currie wrote in a May 16 note. Additionally, U.S. shale or OPEC are unlikely to be able to solve problems from potential supply disruptions, according to the bank. It said the case for owning commodities has strengthened and raised its forecast for 12-month returns from raw materials to 8 percent from 5 percent.

“Oil speculative net long positions have been declining since $73 a barrel with the common mantra, ‘we will ride this one out’,” the analysts wrote in the report. “These are dangerous words from a risk management perspective.”

Bullish bets by money managers on global benchmark Brent crude have declined for four weeks since mid-April, while front-month futures have jumped more than 10 percent over the past month. Speculation has been swirling over how a U.S. decision to renew sanctions on Iran may curb exports from OPEC’s third-largest producer, and whether output from America or other nations such as Saudi Arabia will be able to fill any loss of supply.

Global oil demand has expanded at a relatively steady pace for decades. At its current growth rate, global oil consumption will hit the 100-million-barrel-per-day (BPD) mark next year, up from 97.8 million BPD in 2017. According to most forecasts, including that of the International Energy Agency (IEA), demand should continue climbing until at least 2040 even with accelerated growth in electric vehicles.

However, in a new estimate, energy industry consultancy Wood Mackenzie has pushed up that time frame by four years, and sees 2036 as the year that oil demand will peak. Driving its view is the expected accelerated adoption of autonomous electric vehicles, which it predicts will become widely accepted by 2035. While that would finally curb the world’s insatiable demand for oil, it won’t dry it up completely.
