9 months ago · 20 min listen

In the multitudinous legislation that is unfolding as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the IRS has issued relief from taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) from IRAs and employer sponsored plans under the CARES Act. Bob Keebler, CPA/PFS, interviews Ed Slott, CPA, in this fast-paced, jam-packed episode about the impact of the CARES Act on RMDs:

  • What is the new RMD rule under the CARES Act and how does it work?

  • Who is eligible to waive the RMDs and who does it benefit?

  • What are the tax planning strategies you should consider?

  • How does this provision impact the 5-year rule and IRAs without a designated beneficiary?

  • What if you already took your RMD and you don’t need it?

  • How do you piece together the various guidance and relief to understand the rules?
