    IRAs, Taxes
Can I sell all of the holdings in my IRA and keep the cash in my IRA account without tax consequences?
86% of people found this answer helpful

In short, yes.  Anything you do in a tax-advantaged account (i.e. Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, 401(k) plan, 403(b) plan, etc.) isn't subject to taxation as long as the sale proceeds remain in the account.  When you withdraw money from a traditional IRA, you pay income tax on the amount withdrawn.

On a related note, I wouldn't recommend holding cash in an IRA since inflation will often be higher than the rate of return on cash.  Consider more aggressive investments that fit in with your overall investment portfolio, such as equities and bonds.  

Hope this helps!  

If you'd like additional insight into wealth-building strategies, consider my book Redefining Family Wealth: A Parent's Guide to Purposeful Living.  The book turns common misconceptions about wealth upside down and instead offers a step-by-step guide to create a financial plan aligned with your values.  Pre-order by 6/13 and get two valuable bonuses: a workbook that supplements the book and a special video from me.
