RMD update?

Has there been a development in proper handling of RMD's and tax withholding?
So what is the current preferred method of handling?
I still can't get Q R38.29 to properly account for the gross distribution when it is transferred to a checking account. This is an especially tiresome event when it comes out of more than one mutual fund every month.

This is a common problem and should get more attention than cosmetic changes to the program.

    The key is to create the transaction(or reminder) as a deposit in your checking account with the money coming from the IRA as a transfer in.  If taxes are withheld include that as a split to that deposit.  Transfers out for the IRA should be set to the 1099 taxable distributions.

    I use an auto enter reminder which then creates a negative cash balance in the IRA.  Since I download the IRA account I just then wait for the sell transactions to show up, bringing the cash balance back to zero.  If that doesn't happen I know something is wrong.
