Customer Question
I turned 70 1/2...

I turned 70 1/2 Feb 2017. I filed and received refunds from Fed and State (NJ). I did not include RMD for a simple IRA I have with Chase. Can I include 2017 and 2018 RMD in the 2018 tax or do I have to file amended.

Hi. My name’s Lane …

I hold a law degree (J.D.), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA in finance, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS (Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice, to clients on three continents, since 1986.

I’m reading your question now.

Bear with me a moment while I type up my response.

….

Then if you have further questions we can go from there.

I'm so sorry, but if you took the distribution in 2017 (physically received the funds anything between 01/01/2017 and 12.31.2017) .....

...

As calendar year/cash basis taxpayers, the distribution has to be reported on a 2017 return.

...

The IRS system will catch that there was a 2017 1099-R tied to your social security number that wasn't reported on a 2017 return.

SO, yes, this is exactly the kind of thing that the 1040X (amended return) is designed to cover.

...

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

I did not take the distribution, therefore I did not report it on my return's.
Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 1 month ago

Then you'll take in 2018 and report on the 2018 return. ... AND ... because, for traditional individual retirement accounts, including SEP and SIMPLE IRAs, required minimum distributions, or RMDs, must be taken by April 1 of the year following the calendar year you reach age 70 1/2, you'll not have the 50% excise tax either (if that was your question).

...

But again, no if you didn't receive the funds (take constructive receipt during the calendar, as IRS would put it) you have no 2017 reporting requirement
