I have received a K1 form relating to profits made in an ETF

Resolved Question:

I have received a K1 form relating to profits made in an ETF last year but the fund was held in my IRA account. Must I include this in my 1040 return?

Thank you for using Just Answer.

Anything that happens within an IRA is not reported. However, under some circumstances, a sale within an IRA can effect other returns; specifically, if you sell something at a loss outside an IRA and buy it in an IRA, it can trigger the wash sale rules.
