When handled properly, the benefits and tax-sheltered growth of inherited IRAs may extend over future generations.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Bequeathing IRAs as an inheritance must be planned as carefully as one plans the investments made within those accounts. Why? Inherited IRAs have a few rules that differ from ordinary IRAs. While these rules are not daunting, it is critical to fully discuss the options and requirements with an accountant or certified financial planner in order to achieve the desired benefits and to help maximize the returns in an inherited retirement account.
"The details of inherited IRAs can often be complicated—not so much for the original owner, but for the beneficiary if these details are not properly set up before the time comes to pass the IRAs on," says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Administration. The original owners of these IRAs must ensure any beneficiary is properly named. Additionally, the beneficiary of an inherited IRA, once it is passed down, must also fall within compliance of special rules of these accounts. Not doing so can result in considerable pain come tax time for the beneficiary. "When handled properly," says Callahan, "the benefits and tax-sheltered growth of inherited IRAs may extend over future generations."
