Q.: I have some mutual funds which my husband is against. He fears any risk. My daughter’s name is on them with me. I am 73 and wondering about withdrawing them before I get too old. If they are withdrawn, they will go into a regular bank account. If I die before I withdraw them, how would they affect my daughter tax wise?
