Beneficiaries of stretch IRAs will get slammed by higher taxes under pending legislation that’s expected shortly to become federal law, triggering a need for urgent action to shield inherited and spousal IRAs from higher taxes.

Life expectancy payouts on IRAs are likely to be shortened to only five- or 10-years instead of being based on a beneficiary's actuarial life expectancy. This legislation has strong bipartisan support and is supported by the President.

Robert Keebler, CPA/PFS, says professionals must be prepared to pivot fast into a new strategic environment. If you wait to learn about the new moves to make until the bill is signed, you likely to miss 2019 planning opportunities. To prepare you to pivot and shift into new strategies, this class covers:

Changes in life expectancy payouts on traditional and Roth IRAs
Impact of the loss of deferral and bracket compression on wealth transfer planning
Using CRTs to maintain deferral and bracket management, the law and the math
Roth conversions for better bracket management and greater wealth transfer
Designing IRA trusts and the terrible payout result with RMD conduit trusts, the law and the math
Using IRA trusts in low tax states to achieve state tax savings by avoiding or delaying the state taxation of the lump sum payout
Using single life insurance to enhance bracket management, the unbiased math
Using Second-to-Die insurance to increase wealth transfer
Urgent action steps for ill and dying clients including avoiding conduit trusts and using out of state trusts.
Charitable strategies for the mass-affluent and the wealthy
