What is the deadline for taking your first RMD after your 70 and 1/2 birthdate?

My wife is a stickler on not taking out her IRA money until she absolutely must. Smart wife. I have read from Intuit Questions that it does not have to be done until April 1st following the year she turns 70 and 1/2. Confirmation is mandatory according to her. What say you?

    No one here is qualified to give that sort of tax advice.  I'd suggest that you consult www.IRS.gov
