Avoiding the 10% Tax Penalty

Have you paid medical expenses this year worth more than 10% of your adjusted gross income? Do you plan on buying your first home soon? Are you currently paying for higher education expenses?

If you said yes to any of these scenarios, and you’re younger than age 59½, you may qualify to withdraw from your retirement account while still avoiding the 10% early distribution penalty.

While tapping into your retirement account should usually be a last resort, there are some situations that may cause you to consider accessing your money early. However, qualifying for the exception is only the first step. You must also make sure the exception applies to the type of plan you have, and the expense must be made within the same year as the distribution.
