If you hold the same dividend payer in your IRA, the company still withholds the taxes on the dividend, but you can't claim the credit for the withheld taxes (because US taxes on the dividend are deferred until you take a distribution), which effectively lowers your dividend yield.

Does the provider of the IRA take care of this automatically? Or do I have to fill out extra paper work?

What about non-dividend ADRs? Thanks.
