RMD – Required Minimum Distribution Reminder
In our post here this month, we reminded all of those with birthdays between 7-1-46 and 6-30-47 that have the unique option of deferring their first mandatory RMD taxable distribution to next year, but if you do that will mean you need to take two distributions in the same year.
The first year is the only time we get this option, all the future years are mandatory with not option.
