When do (or did) you turn 70 1/2? Remember that you must begin taking the required minimum distributions from your traditional IRA no later than April 1 of the year after the year you turn 70 1/2. You have no choice about this, or it will cost you a stiff penalty. You may not be able to avoid being pushed into the higher bracket.
