Start IRA RMD

Hi,

I will be turning 72 in July.  When must I start my IRA RMD? Can I wait until 2024? If I do will I need to take two distributions in 2024?

Start IRA RMD

Everyone who has posted so far appears to have missed the fact that SECURE 2.0 changed the tax code such that for individuals reaching age 72 after December 31, 2022 the age for beginning RMDs is 73, not 72.  Because you will reach age 72 after 2022 and will reach age 73 in 2024, 2024 is your first RMD year.  You have until April 1, 2025 to satisfy your 2024 RMD.  If you wait until 2025 to take your 2024 RMD, you will have to take both your 2024 and 2025 RMDs in 2025.

Googled RMD: The SECURE 2.0 Act of 2022 was signed into law in late December and changes the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) age to 73 for individuals who turn 72 on or after January 1, 2023.

I am a bit confused.  TurboTax said I must take RMD in 2023. I turn 72 after January 1, 2023.  So who is correct.  All the notices I see I will start my RMD in 2024 when I turn 73.

CORRECTION: See post by dmertz below.

 

Since you will turn 72 in 2023 you must take an RMD for 2023. You can take it up until April 1, 2024 (not April 15). But if you wait until 2024 to take your 2023 RMD you will have two distributions in 2024 because you must also take an RMD for 2024. The option to wait until April 1 of the following year applies only to your first RMD.

if you defer the 2023 RMD then you must take two in 2024. the first by 4/1 and the second before the end of the year

the first would be based on the value of all IRA accounts on 12/31/2022 (the deferred 2023 RMD)

th second would be based on the value of all IRA accounts on 12/31/2023 (the 2024 RMD)

if you have multiple IRA accounts, you can take the full RMD from any of them or split the RMD among the acounts any way yo want. 

 

Roth accounts and other types of retirement accounts do not figure into the IRA RMD calculations.

Go to this IRS website - https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/retirement-plan-and-ira-required-minimum-distributions-faqs

 

Beginning in 2023, the SECURE 2.0 Act raised the age that you must begin taking RMDs to age 73. If you reach age 72 in 2023, the required beginning date for your first RMD is April 1, 2025, for 2024. Notice 2023-23PDF permits financial institutions to notify IRA owners no later than April 28, 2023, that no RMD is required for 2023.

It's almost certain that any 2022 year-end statements you received that mentioned 2023 as your first RMD year would not reflect the change since the change did not became law until December 29, 2022.
