Should I draw from a taxable account in order to fund living expenses to completely maximize some of my retirement accounts?

I am currently 30 years old. I am contributing $11K a year to my Roth 401(k), and am maxing out my ESPP. Would it make sense to withdraw about $12.5K a year from my taxable account (inheritance) in order to cover my expenses as I max out my Roth 401(k) and fully fund a Roth IRA.

In theory, your logic is sound, however, there are some missing pieces of information that can clarify your situation a little bit better - your earned income, annual expenses, and the size of inherited investment account.

Let me as you a couple of questions back that might actually help you find the answer. How long can your investment account last before you completely deplete it? Do you have other savings that you can use in the case of emergency? Can you cut down your expenses to cover the shortfall instead of using the inherited money?
