Inherited IRAs- How to Contact your Senators
Last week, I encouraged all of you to write to your Senators regarding proposed changes to IRAs. Here is a link to do so from the Financial Services Institute:
This bill would no longer permit tax deferred stretches of IRAs for beneficiaries other than a spouse, minor children, or the disabled. Adult children would only be permitted a five-year window to defer.
Overall, this bill would require beneficiaries to pay taxes on inherited IRAs over five years instead of spreading them over their lifetime. If passed, the provision would apply to deaths after December 31, 2012.
If you decide to contact your representative, follow the link above and let them know you want your inherited IRAs protected.
