I have lived in the United States and have a sizable amount of money in a 401(k) managed by MassMutual there. However, I'm looking at buying a home where I currently live, and the exchange rate is good, so it's a good time to look into getting the money out.
I don't plan to retire in the US and don't have any income there. I also don't have any permanent residence in the US.
What's the best way to get the money out with a minimal tax penalty? Should I withdraw $8000 (standard income tax deduction amount) every year until it's all gone?
