If I missed the deadline for my 2017 required minimum distribution (RMD) but did withdraw in January 2018, do I include the RMD as income in my 2017 or 2018 tax filing?

  The amount is included in your 2018 income taxes. You will receive a  2018 1099-R. On the waiver, be sure and explain your situation why you were not able to take the distribution. Also, put the date you did take the RMD.
