When I do a rollover of a company 401K to a self directed IRA, do I need to report this rollover to the IRS? I got the impression that I do but I don't understand why. Why does the IRS care if I did a rollover?
Same question with a traditional IRA that I've transferred from one broker to another... is this considered a rollover and does it need to be reported to the IRS?
