I need help filling out this IRA form to withdraw money. How do I fill this out?
I am confused on the highlighted part.
How does a complete withdrawal of Roth IRA affect the 5 years rule?
Remember in school…how they stressed the difference between primary sources and secondary sources? Well, if you screw up with the IRS it can cost you , So do yourself a favor and check out the Internal Revenue Service site. Publication 520 (I think) covers IRAs and is online for you to read or download. There is an site index and a pub index to tell you what page discusses Roths. You can trust Quora (I wouldn’t with taxes) but it behoves you to then verify.Tip: Keep a tax file and make a note of what you are doing. I keep a copy of the irs instruction page and highlight what I am doing so I remember what I was thinking the following April.
How much can you contribute to both a Roth IRA and a SIMPLE IRA in the same tax year?
Mike and Wray are correct and offer some great information in their posts. Just to reiterate, yes you may contribute the max to both a Roth and a SIMPLE assuming you fall below the MAGI limit.Also, if you are married you might be able to open a spousal IRA/Roth for your spouse if you are under the aforementioned MAGI limits. Thus, even if your spouse isn't working you can open a Roth or traditional IRA and make a deductible contribution to his/her account. Assuming you fall below the phaseout limits and your spouse qualifies, you could contribute an additional $5K (deductible).

Greeting !!!Below are basic details for Form 15G or form 15HForm 15G or form 15H is submitted to request income provider for not deducting TDS for prescribed income. In that form, declaration maker declares that his estimated taxable income for the same year is Nil.If you fulfill following conditions, submit form 15G / form 15H:1. Your estimated tax liability for the current year is NIL and2. Your interest for financial year does not exceed basic exemption limit + relief under section 87A.Only resident Indian can submit form 15G / form 15H. NRI cannot submit those forms.

However, AOP and HUF can submit those forms.Consequences of wrongly submitting form 15G or form 15H:If your estimated income from all the sources is more than thebasic exemption limit ( + relief under section 87A if applicable), don’t submitform 15G or form 15H to income provider. Wrongly submission of form 15G / form15H will attract section 277 of income tax act.Be Peaceful !!!
I recently opened a Fidelity Roth IRA and it says my account is closed and I need to submit a W-9 form. Can anyone explain how this form relates to an IRA and why I need to fill it out?
Financial institutions are required to obtain tax ID numbers when opening an account, and the fact that it's an IRA doesn't exempt them from that requirement. They shouldn't have opened it without the W-9 in the first place, but apparently they did. So now they had to close it until they get the required documentation.
How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.
