Qualified Dollars and the SECURE Act
Who do your clients want their IRA to go to: their family, charity or the IRS?
With the passing of the SECURE Act in late 2019, the taxation of inherited IRAs changed significantly. Now, instead of a young beneficiary taking distributions over several decades, all assets must be distributed (and taxed) within 10 years.
If you do legacy planning for clients, it’s important to understand how to minimize the tax impact under the new law. Watch this discussion on legacy efficiency. We cover considerations such as:
- How clients can maintain care, custody and control
- How to increase legacy funds without additional investment risk
- Methods for allocating tax-inefficient assets to charity
