Report the IRA liquidation when you file your tax return.
If the account you liquidated was a traditional IRA, report the entire amount on IRS Form 1040.
Otherwise, IRA funds you use to pay federal taxes are subject to the usual IRA distribution rules. If you manage your IRA online, your funds may appear as cash within one to three days of the liquidation request.
You can then transfer them to your personal checking account.
Otherwise, the funds will likely be disbursed via mailed check.
Allow an additional seven to 10 mailing days to receive the check.
This penalty applies only to distributions of earnings from Roth IRAs.
