Can I take the RMDs for an inherited IRA and my regular IRA, both from only the inherited IRA?


I have two IRAs, a regular one that I funded and an inherited one. An RMD is required for each. Can I take both RMDs from the inherited IRA until it is depleted?


No, you can’t take it all from one IRA.  You can lump the traditional IRAs into one column and the inherited IRA in another.  With the traditional IRAs, you may make the withdrawal from one of them if you have several.  If you have inherited more than one IRA from the same person, you may make one withdrawal from those inherited IRAs.
