HelloThere is an exclusion for the 10% penalty for disability but not for distributions to avoid tax based on the situation. The IRA distribution is taxable even if made for disability reasons.The only time distributions are not taxable is when there is a basis in the IRA (an amount that was already taxed).I wish I could tell you differently.You are required to click a positive rating if I am to be credited with the response.You have to actively click on a rating and click submit.
