2006 WI App 38, 290 Wis. 2d 250, 711 N.W.2d 698 (WI Ct. App., 2006)
The court did not have to consider the tax consequences of husband’s withdrawal from his IRA to make the equalization payment since it was anticipated that he would sell or refinance the homestead. Husband’s choice to raise funds through a method which resulted in a penalty is his erroneous exercise of discretion, not the court’s.
