I'm planning to open a traditional (pre-tax) IRA account with Vanguard. I'm a non-resident who might move back to my home country in next few years.
1. What are the tips for minimizing the taxes if I do a early withdrawal on reaching my home country?
2. For early withdrawal (IRA distributions) what will be the federal tax withholding rates (apart from 10% penalty) considering there won't be any ordinary income to me in US? Keep in mind that I'll already be paying taxes in my home country for these distributions.
3. How easily I can control/operate my IRA account from overseas?
The federal tax would be whatever your income would be from the withdrawal. Withdraw $100K, your income is $100K.
