6/1/2022: The Ever Changing Landscape of the Taxation of IRAs

The Treasury Department has issued a 275-page set of Proposed Regulations that attempt to clarify many of the RMD issues resulting from SECURE. Included are a number of surprising provisions, some favoring taxpayers and some not. In addition, in March, the House of Representatives passed their version of what has become known as SECURE 2.0 and the Senate is likely to move on this shortly. Secure 2.0 is designed to expand retirement savings thus making it likely that the taxation issues will become even more important in the future. The seminar will focus on the present and proposed future tax consequences arising from IRA contributions and distributions including a discussion of potential planning opportunities. Participants must have a basic knowledge of the Income and Estate Tax Rules relating to IRA contribution, distribution and ownership.
