Course Description

This is a critical post-Secure Act class for Accounting Professionals, Tax Professionals, Lawyers drafting trusts to receive IRAs at death and the CPAs and Financial advisors that work with those lawyers. 

Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the tax aspects of IRA planning and the opportunities to preserve retirement funds after death. Nevertheless, with a solid understanding of the post-Secure Act IRA provisions, one will be able to plan around the key issues and identify opportunities. The ten-year rule under 401(a)(9)(H) was layered over the existing statute and underlying 401(a)(9) regulations. Most IRAs will be subject to the ten-year rule, but traps and exceptions continue to exist in the expanded labyrinth of tax and property law surrounding IRA-Trusts.

In this exclusive LISI Webinar, which includes flowcharts, tables and spreadsheets, Robert Keebler  will review these critical issues:

Robert does a nice job of breaking down the fundamental concepts of the so-called 3 "tax" buckets: tax me now (cash management), tax me later (tax deferred retirement accounts) and don't tax me at all (life insurance retirement plans). He very effectively explains the benefits and drawbacks of each bucket. This is a webinar for anyone interested in learning the fundamentals of retirement planning

JH

Excellent Webinar from The Prosperity Guy! Would highly recommend anyone working with pre-retirement clients to attend this session. What you don't know in taxes will be painful later and can be alleviated with the advice provided by this webinar. Tell your clients not to go it alone, but get advice from someone who has looked at the future

"As I am approaching my own retirement age I took this course more for myself. This speaker navigates well through a myriad of retirement vehicles and explains in each case why each option might be good as well as any drawbacks dependent upon future variables one may encounter. Even if you are unaware of every retirement vehicle mentioned in this webcast each is explained thoroughly enough to follow along.

JR

his was an exceptionally interesting retirement planning webinar. Very useful information, especially related to the risk of today's tax deferred retirement funds, mutual funds, stocks, and bonds investing that we are all counting on to fund our retirements
