A transfer of assets is the movement of retirement assets between similar account types (e.g. IRA to IRA account) with the same owner unless the transfer is due to death or divorce. There are no limits on the number of transfers you can do between retirement accounts. A transfer of assets is not a tax-reportable event because the assets are transferred directly between institutions without the owner taking receipt.
Is a Transfer of Assets right for you?
A transfer of assets is an appropriate method for moving retirement assets if you:
- Own more than one IRA
- Are moving an IRA more than once in a 12-month period
- Prefer not to report the movement of assets on your tax return
