Delaying Retirement Income No Longer Makes Sense, Ed Slott Says

Many of today’s planners and accountants are poorly prepared to help their clients through changes in IRA tax and retirement rules, said IRA and tax expert Ed Slott. That’s because until recent years, long-standing conventional wisdom in tax planning has been to delay taking taxable income or distributions for as long as possible, Slott, president of Ed Slott & Co., said yesterday at Financial Advisor’s Next Chapter—ReThinking Retirement virtual conference. Today’s retirement rules and proposed changes in tax laws create greater incentive to take income and pay taxes sooner than later, he said.

Ed Slott To Advisors: Don't Make Changes Based On New RMD Guidance Yet

Two tax and retirement specialists say a recent IRS publication has thrown IRA inheritance planning into chaos, but that advisors shouldn’t make changes just yet. Until the release of IRS Publication 590-B (Pub 590-B), retirement and tax experts told advisors that 2019’s SECURE Act required that the entire balance of an inherited IRA be withdrawn by Dec. 31 of the 10th year following the original account owner’s death, but that no annual required minimum distributions (RMDs) would be necessary, said Ed Slott, founder of Ed Slott and Co. and professor of practice at the American College of Financial Services, and Robert Keebler, founder of Green Bay, Wis.-based Keebler & Associates, a tax advisory and CPA firm in a webcast.
