The IRS recently issued guidance on the retirement provisions included under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, relating to 2020 RMD waivers (non-RMD) and coronavirus-related distributions. Guidance includes exceptions that allow otherwise ineligible taxpayers to take advantage of non-RMD rollovers and other benefits. Advisors must notify clients now since August 31, 2020 is the deadline to take advantage of some of these provisions. Join us as we explain how you can use the exceptions and waivers provided in these two critical pieces of IRS guidance to help your clients
