401k Rollovers: IRA Rollovers
A traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), a 401k account, a 403b account, etc.—all of these qualified retirement accounts are tax-deferred, which means no income taxes have yet been paid on them. One of the downsides of tax-deferred accounts is that every year, millions of retired Americans starting at age 70-1/2 are forced to take Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from these accounts and pay ordinary income taxes on the money withdrawn.
The rules and formulas for RMDs can be complex, and money must be taken out by midnight, December 31st each year—there is no grace period to April 15. Penalties are stiff if done wrong—50% plus the tax due! Many retirees are surprised to find how much tax they owe; some even have such a high amount of annual combined income that their Social Security benefits also get taxed.
NOTE: Roth IRA accounts are after-tax retirement accounts which do not require that RMDs be withdrawn every year.
