  • Traditional IRA contribution limits and income limits for deductions
  • Roth IRA contribution eligibility and when is the interest really tax-free?
  • What are the rules for moving Traditional IRAs into Roth IRAs?

  • What are the rules for rolling over a 529 plan to a Roth IRA?
  • When do we use the “rollover” term from IRA to IRA?
  • What are the new exceptions to the 10% penalty for IRA distributions taken prior to age 59.5 and how do we report them?
  • When did age 73 really kick in to begin RMDs?
  • When the IRA owner died after 2019 and was in RMD status, does the beneficiary get to take optional distributions the first 9 years?
  • What are the nine red flags of beneficiary payouts?
  • What are the options for paying out to a trust beneficiary?
