When I start taking IRA distributions after age 59 1/2 are those distributions taxed simply as income, or do I have to
pay short term capital gains for all the
short term gains taken over the life of the IRA? How does that work? Please excuse my ignorance on this!!

You may e-mail me directly if you wish at

The distributions are taxed the same way wages are on your tax return. No long or short term gains. Just 100% of distributions tax at regular income tax rates.
