You spend your whole career growing your tax-deferred investment accounts like 401(k)s, 403(b)s and IRAs. And once you reach age 70½, the IRS requires that you start withdrawing your savings (thus giving Uncle Sam his annual income-tax cut) through what’s known as required minimum distributions (RMDs). Understanding how RMDs work so you can avoid costly penalties and account for the tax liability is a critical element of every investor’s spending and saving strategy in retirement.
