Have IRA invest acct with corporate and municipal bonds Know if you withdraw interest from corp it is taxable If you take interest from tax free municipal bonds is it also taxable?
No matter what your investments in an IRA are, the tax situation only unfolds when you withdraw money from the IRA. How the investments in the IRA earn a yield is irrelevant. If its a traditional IRA you will be taxed when you start withdrawing money at retirement. If its a Roth, you will not be taxed on withdrawals no matter what the investments are inside the IRA. Sinces IRA are taxed deferred in makes little senses to invest into a Tax Free Municipal bond.
