In Reply to: Cash settlement by landlord for vacating -- best way to arrange it posted by carlson on January 03, 2002 at 12:58:39:
: I expect to receive a cash settlement from my landlord in return for giving up possession of the NYC apartment I live in.
: Other than receiving the money as a 'lump sum,' and having to lose a significant portion of it to taxes, are there any other ways I can arrange to be paid that will shelter it?
: (I'd prefer not to become involved in any 'installment' arrangement since I will probably not stay in NYC, therefore will be in a bad position should problems with that arrangement later arise.)
: I'm 52 years old and single. As 'normal income' the settlement would appear to be 30% taxable (based on 2002 rate tables). In the past, I've generally paid at the 15% rate.
: Thanks very much.
use the search box: saw this subject months ago.
this is not regular income: it is capital gains.
