Subject:  Inherited IRA-Minimum Distribution Date:  3/23/2013  7:37 PM
Author:  iborg Number:  118134 of 127546

I inherited a small [$12k] IRA in 2011, and understood that since my Mother had not yet taken a 2011 distribution, that I was required to do so. The problem is, I forgot to take it.

Last year I took the 2011 distribution amount and the 2012 distribution amount.

Do I need to file anything now with the IRS because of this mistake, or should I wait and see if/what the IRS tells me?
