I have an IRA CD maturing in a couple weeks and wish to invest it in a mutual fund IRA. In regards to capital gains distributions should I wait until after 1st of year or does it make any differance since its an IRA?

IRAs are not subject to capital gains taxes. Depending on the type of IRA, it may be subject to income tax when you eventually take your qualified distributions.
