Re: First Time Financial Evaluation

Thank you Duckie for your response. I had noticed that you had given good advice to others and was hoping that you would respond. I like your idea about contributing to the 403b plan.

Re: Roth IRA contribution withdrawals (Taxable?)

Very helpful. Thank you all for the clarification. Turbotax was not friendly to me when entering this information in so I will now be going to a professional. Turbotax is not very friendly when it comes to more challenging items (at least for me anyway). Thanks again!
