I turned 70 1/2 in 2006. I chose to defer taking my first MRD from IRAs until 2007.
Last month I took the 2006 distribution and part of the 2007 required distribution. Well and good.
My January 2007 statement from my broker lists the amount, but lists all of it as 2007. My broker says it is listed under 2007 because it was taken in 2007, and this is not a problem with the IRS since I had until April 1 to make the withdrawal and did so in plenty of time.
When contributing to the IRA, contributions for the previous year can be made until April of the following year. The statement will give a box for 2007 contributions, and next to it a box for "2006 contributions made in 2007".
No such separation on the withdrawal side.

Is all this as it should be?

Thanks! Chris
