    If you die before your RBD, then there is no required distribution for your year of death - even if you already took part of the distribution before you die. Your spouse or other beneficiaries are not required to take any further funds out of the IRA to satisfy your distribution in the year of death. If the beneficiaries do not need the money, then let it stay in the IRA to continue growing and compounding tax deferred until they need to begin taking their own RMDs from the inherited account (12/31 of the following year)

    But, if you die after the RBD and have not taken your entire RMD for the year, then your beneficiaries must take the balance of the RMD before the end of the year. The RMD for the year of death is calculated as you had lived for the entire year. -
