Taxation of Inherited IRA Assets

If you have recently inherited an IRA, may receive an inherited IRA in your future or are passing along your IRA to beneficiaries, it is important for you to be aware of the taxation of inherited IRA assets. Specifically, IRS requires you to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from an inherited IRA. Since IRA accounts are typically funded with all — or almost all — pretax funds, every distribution from an IRA is taxed as ordinary income and can have a considerable effect on your tax liability. There have always been rules to require taxpayers to take these distributions and pay tax on them, but these rules have changed significantly in the last couple of years.
