thsnks.. for calling 'brevity' what i would call wrong and Wrong.

<grump> ..i'll have to research since i've been converting Roth with that in mind.



Phil, as always, is correct. Income tax on inherited ROTH IRA distributions is possible, but is not as serious as it may first appear.

RMDs are required on inherited IRAs. A spouse who inherits an TIRA can transfer it to their name and avoid inherited RMD requirements. I believe, the same is true for a ROTH.
