Biography:

As the founder and Managing Partner of Auctus Advisors LLC, Mr. Miller maintains overall responsibility for all client outcomes.

Mr. Miller began his career as an analyst with an investment management firm in Washington DC where he researched and analyzed portfolio holdings.  In 2005, he joined Northwestern Mutual and a d/b/a of the firm, Powell Financial, that he later helped take private in 2007.  Mr. Miller spent 9 years as a partner at Powell Financial where he oversaw the firm’s planning and investment process.  In 2015, Mr. Miller became Managing Director of MBL Advisors, a boutique wealth advisory firm within McColl Brothers Lockwood, the family office established by Hugh L. McColl Jr., former Chairman and CEO of Bank of America.

Due to continued regulatory reform, and the desire to be a fee only investment firm, Mr. Miller founded Auctus Advisors and amicably spun out the wealth management practice, retaining key members of his team.

Mr. Miller earned his B.A. degree from Pfeiffer University; attending on a 4 year soccer scholarship. He then earned his M.B.A in Finance from East Carolina’s College of Business.  Miller also holds his Series 65 and Life, Health and Long Term Care license.

    IRAs, Taxes
If I missed the deadline for my 2017 required minimum distribution (RMD) but did withdraw in January 2018, do I include the RMD as income in my 2017 or 2018 tax filing?

Include the form in 2017 and request waiver.  The income though should be claimed in 2018 when you received teh 1099-R from your brokerage company.  You need those forms to match.  I would attach a letter to the form of course, and if you can withhold taxes from the distribution to let the IRS know you paid something immediately.
