Penalty for early withdrawl

Guest CCDB

Recommended Posts

Our employer started a SIMPLE IRA back in August, 1998. I've been told that if I remove money from the plan, the amount withdrawn will be taxed, and an additional 10% penalty assessed. Is the penalty assesed on the total amount withdrawn, or is it on the tax? For example, if I withdraw $10,000, and my tax bracket is 28% (or $2,800), is the 10% penalty $1,000 ($10,000 x 10%) or $280.00 ($2,800 x 10%)?
