February 13, 2017

Our next meeting is Monday February 13 starting at noon in my office.  The speaker for this meeting will be Michael Kitces, CFP®, MSFS, MTAX, CLU®, ChFC®, RHU®, REBC®, CASL® and Partner at Pinnacle Advisory Group.  As many of you know, Michael is a nationally recognized speaker who has spoken at many international, national and local conferences.  Michael has spoken to our group for the last several years, and his presentations typically fill the room with attendees.  Click on his name to get to his most impressive website and links to his library of articles, podcasts, etc.

This year, Michael’s topic is Trusts as Beneficiaries of IRAs.  As the use of trusts in estate planning becomes increasingly popular for both tax and non-tax reasons, and clients continue to accumulate more and more assets in retirement accounts, the use of trusts as beneficiaries of IRAs is increasing desirable and necessary. Unfortunately, though, the rules pertaining to IRAs payable to a trust after death are complex and challenging. In this session, Michael will explore the unique requirements for IRAs to preserve and maximize their tax deferral after death when a trust is the beneficiary, with details about the rules for trusts to qualify for the IRA’s post-death tax deferral “stretch,” how to calculate the actual post-death required minimum distributions for the trust, and examples of specific wording from sample trusts.

Please remember to reserve a seat by e-mailing my assistant, Chris at, or by calling Chris at 301-230-6565 x 5392.
