Q: Am I required to report to the IRS that I missed a RMD?

I missed an RMD in 2018 from an inherited IRA. I realize that there is a method (Form 5329) to report the mistake, but am I legally bound to make the report?

If taxes are due, yes. But, that will rarely be the case. See a qualified CPA or lawyer.

The IRS investigates and prosecutes tax fraud. Once you report it to them, they handle it from there. This answer does not constitute legal advice; make any predictions, guarantees, or warranties; or create any Attorney-Client relationship.

Q: I filed my taxes using TurboTax's free online service. Is there a way for me to "cancel" my filing and re-do them?

I feel that the amount I owe Washington D.C. is incorrect, and that I must have filed them incorrectly. I'd love to just "cancel" and start over.

This may be software specific, but I do not believe you can "cancel" your return. You may need to amend if your return has already been e-filed and processed. However, if for some reason your return gets reject you may be able to make changes and resubmit.
