Favorable Tax Treatment Extension on Inherited IRAs

reviewing your tax plans by Aubrey Lovegrove

Individuals that inherit an IRA can have an extended tax deferral over their life expectancy. However, if they are sharing the inheritance, they must break out their own account on given deadlines to ensure they receive maximum tax deferral.

To divide an IRA that is inherited into different accounts for every beneficiary enables you to:

-Take distributions on your preferred schedule.

-Name successor beneficiaries of your selection.

-Follow the investment philosophy of your choice.

Furthermore, setting up a separate account for IRA beneficiaries will allow them to use their own life expectancy for the needs to calculate minimum distributions that are required. Any other way, the shorter life expectancy will be used.

For instance, if you are aged 40 years and your sister is 50 at the time you inherited an IRA jointly, it is required for you take minimum distributions over her life expectancy of 33.3 years.

Separating the IRA into two ensures you are entitled to taking small distributions over your long life expectancy, which will allow you to enjoy more tax deferral. To receive these favorable tax treatments, you will be needed to separate IRA by December 31 of the year after the passing of the IRA owner.
