What is a distribution? IRA distributions are withdrawals from a self-directed IRA, 401(k), or health savings account (HSA). Distributions can be taken in cash or in kind (in which case the actual asset would become your personal property). Distributions may involve taxes or penalties depending on your account type and your age. New Direction Trust Company will report annual distribution activities via Form 1099-R, which will be issued to you and directly to the IRS.
Distributions are added to your income and taxed accordingly once you reach age 59½.
Qualified Roth IRA distributions can be 100% tax-free.
Self-employed individuals can enjoy the same tax benefits as Traditional IRA holders.
Distributions from a SIMPLE IRA will mirror those of a Traditional or SEP IRA.
A Solo 401(k) can accept Traditional or Roth contributions; distributions will reflect this.
HSA distributions can be 100% tax-free as long as they cover qualified medical expenses.
ESA distributions can be 100% tax-free if they cover qualified education expenses.
