Required minimum distribution (RMD) must begin for the year in which the account owner reaches age 70½, unless an exception applies. Failure to comply with the RMD rules will result in the account owner owing the IRS a 50% excess accumulation penalty on any RMD shortfall. RMDs must also be taken from inherited accounts, and the process for determining RMDs for these accounts are more complex than those that apply to RMDs for non-inherited accounts. Interested parties must understand the compliance requirements that apply to RMDs, to be able to assist in ensuring that penalties are avoided.

  • The definition of a required minimum distribution
  • The types of accounts that are subject to the required minimum distribution rules
  • The parties that are subject to the required minimum distribution rules
