Retirement tax questions

The money reported on your RRB 1099 R is considered an RMD (required minimum distribution).

RMD is required for all retirement accounts.  That is why Turbo Tax has to ask the question, even for pensions.

For pensions, if it is a qualified plan, the RMD requirement is met because you are receiving periodic payments.  However, if you have the ability to control the payments amount, then you must calculate the proper RMD amount to withdraw.

If you are receiving a pension and cannot change the monthly amount, respond yes that you have taken your RMD for this retirement account.
