Did you know that your IRA beneficiary supersedes your will? No matter how carefully you’ve crafted your last intentions in your will, an IRA beneficiary that was never updated after your divorce and remarriage can unwittingly bestow your former spouse with your IRA inheritance, while also disinheriting your new spouse and children. That’s why it’s important to update your beneficiaries after major life changes such as marriage, divorce, births, illness, domestic issues and deaths.

If you have recently inherited an IRA, may receive an inherited IRA in your future or are passing along your IRA to beneficiaries, it is important for you to be aware of the taxation of inherited IRA assets. Specifically, IRS requires you to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from an inherited IRA. Since IRA accounts are typically funded with all — or almost all — pretax funds, every distribution from an IRA is taxed as ordinary income and can have a considerable effect on your tax liability. There have always been rules to require taxpayers to take these distributions and pay tax on them, but these rules have changed significantly in the last couple of years.

Trusts can be written and created to include a wide variety of features and accomplish many goals. So, while there may be a general form to certain commonly used trusts, no two trusts are ever the same. Somewhat like fingerprints, trusts are unique to each individual.
