Are distributions from a Traditional IRA taxable?

Yes, generally IRA distributions from a Traditional IRA are taxable in the year you withdraw them. Further, distributions from Traditional IRAs that you include in income are taxed as ordinary income subject to regular income tax rates. Distributions may also be fully or partially taxable depending on whether your IRA includes any nondeductible contributions. Refer to IRS Publication 590 and the Instructions to IRS Form 8606, Nondeductible IRAs for further information on whether distributions are taxable.
