Now that we have a “permanent” estate tax law, our clients’ attention has been diverted to other tax issues. Chief among these; how to reduce the income tax and estate tax burdens associated with Individual Retirement Accounts.

This class will provide an overview of income and estate taxation related to IRAs after enactment of the SECURE Act. We will focus particularly on the loss of traditional “stretch planning” and how to work around the new 10 year distribution rule. Several techniques exist that will increase the after-tax amount available as an inheritance to charities, children, grandchildren, and others. Finally, we will highlight expanded services which tax professionals could offer to their clients for this important aspect of tax planning.
