Additional Helpful Information

An outstanding transfer is required to be added to the previous year-end fair market value (FMV) of the receiving IRA when calculating the required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year. For instance, if a transfer is initiated in 2009- resulting in the assets leaving the delivering IRA in 2009 and credited to the receiving in 2010, the market value of the transfer must be added to the 12/31/2009 FMV of the receiving IRA when calculating the RMD for 2010. Failure to add the outstanding transfer to the FMV will result in the calculated RMD amount being less than what it should be, causing the IRA owner to owe the IRS an excess accumulation penalty of 50% of the RMD shortfall.
