RMDs - Is it advantageous to take them earlier, later, or neither?

Post by AirTimeMD » Mon Jan 01, 2018 7:47 pm

Hello BH,

I have an inherited IRA account that requires me to take an RMD. I am required to take out $12,400 this year. Assuming that I'm going to take the required amount, $12,400, and put it in a taxable account that holds the same investment(VFINX), is there any advantage in taking the RMD early or later in the year?

Thank you.
