Stacey Marks: Distribution from Account That Ceased Being IRA Is Nontaxable

In Stacey Marks v. Commissioner, TC Memo 2018-49, the Tax Court held that an IRA was treated as making a premature distribution in 2013 due to a failed rollover.  However, because the court determined that the account was not an IRA because the administrator had engaged in a prohibited transaction in 2005 causing the IRA to cease to be an IRA, the premature distribution in 2013 was not taxable.
