In 2020 OP (over age 55) went to his former employer to ask for a large
distribution from his 401(k) plan. The employer was in the middle of
merging with another company, so they did not respond to the request.
Now, in 2021, they say they will make the distribution.
The problem is that OP needed the money in 2020, when his income (and
tax bracket) were low. In 2021 he expects to be in a much higher tax
bracket, so the tax on his 401(k) distribution will be much higher.
Is there anything that can be done about this?
