How are you today?
The answer is "yes" you can use the distribution from the IRA to satisfy your RMD distribution for the year.
Is there any type of IRS reference that I can point to if the IRS questions my action? Remember, IRA #3 dropped into the estate, not directly to me. The executor cut a check from that account to me per terms of the will. IRA #4 is directly naming me as a beneficiary from the estate inherited IRA. Can I tie that general estate distribution in #3 to MRD from the child of IRA #4. I just want to be clear before I make a serious commitment.
Oh I thought that IRA check went directly to you I'm sorry I missed that
In that event, the estate took that distribution and you would have to take an RMD out of #4 based on #4
Does that make sense?
So, I cannot take "credit" for the distribution to the estate as an MRD? It simply goes to no one?
That is correct
Just for clarity, I must be fully taxed on my share og IRA #3 and also take a taxable distribution of 25% (Single Life expectancy of my father) from IRA #4? Bummer
Yes, that is correct
I'm sorry if this is not what you had hoped
