Solo 401k FAQ: Taxable Amount on In-Kind Taxable Distribution of Real Estate

I previously set up a Solo 401k to invest in a rental real estate property.  I am now over 60 years of age and wish to take the property as an in-kind distribution.  I know that I will have to pay taxes.  Will I pay taxes on the original amount that I invested in the property?


No – you will owe taxes on the fair market value of the property at the time of the distribution.
