Money you use for your retirement is taxed just like any other income. It is the source of the funds that may have had special tax circumstances when established. (For example, many are established with tax deductible payments during your working years...meaning the income was never taxed).

For example certain types of plans, a Roth IRA most notably, the income may NOT be taxable, whereas in a normal IRA it is only taxable in part.

BE ADVISED, BY FEDERAL LAW MANY PROGRAMS REQUIRE YOU TO TAKE AT LEAST A MINIMUM DISTRIBUTION EACH YEAR (an AMD - alternative minimum distribution) that is taxable (regardless of if you need it, want it, or not) or have unsavory tax and financial consequences.
