- If the original owner is alive, then Roth individual retirement account (IRA) doesn’t require distributions in the United States.
- The amount of the RMD must be reported to the IRA owner by an IRA trustee, or plan administrator.
- The amount of the RMD can be calculated for the IRA owner by an IRA trustee, alternatively.
- The RMD must be calculated separately by the IRA owner, or trustee for each IRA owned. On the other hand, they can prefer to withdraw the full amount from one or more of the IRAs.
- On the contrary, required minimum distributions must be taken separately from each account, particularly for those RMDs that are required from workplace retirement plans.
How To Calculate Required Minimum Distributions (RMD)?

- Table III (Uniform Lifetime Table) in Publication 590-B, Distributions from Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) shows the complete details on how the life expectancy is used to calculate the RMD for most taxpayers. For example, the required distribution for a taxpayer who turned 72 in 2019 is based on a life expectancy of 25.6 years, as shown in the table.
- Furthermore, a taxpayer whose spouse is over 10 years younger and is the taxpayer’s one and only beneficiary is subjected to Table II.
- The year-end account value is reported to the IRA owner by the trustee in Box 5 of Form 5498, IRA Contribution Information (Info Copy Only).
- To estimate required minimum distributions (RMD), the use online worksheets can be used by the individuals which are available in the Appendices to Publication 590-B.
- For reporting the RMD to the recipient, a trustee often will use box 12b on Form 5498. In such a case, a recipient can find their 2019 RMD on the 2018 Form 5498. During January 2019, the owner is normally issued with the 2018 Form 5498.
- All owners of traditional, SEP and SIMPLE IRAs and participants in workplace retirement plans are mandatory to follow RMD rules.
- Some people (i.e. current employees) in workplace plans can wait longer for receiving their RMDs if their plan allows them to wait until April 1 of the year subsequent to the retirement to start taking their RMDs, no matter what their age is.
