There's no tax need for tracking gains and losses within a retirement account.

This is true for federal, but isn't there one state that doesn't recognize IRAs and requires tracking?


You may be thinking of NJ which doesn't recognize deductible contributions to traditional IRAs. NJ requires you to track all of your contributions (whether deductible at the federal level or not) if you want to exclude any of your distributions from NJ Gross Income Tax.

There is no need to track security cost basis or gains and losses within IRAs in NJ.
