No More IRA Stretching?

Pending Legislation

Senator Baucus’ proposal to do away with stretching for most inherited IRA has not gone away as was anticipated earlier this month. A recently introduced Senate bill, S. 1813, the Highway Investment, Job Creation, and Economic Growth Act, includes a provision that would disallow lifetime tax deferred stretching of IRAs for beneficiaries other than a spouse, minor children or the disabled. Other beneficiaries would be required to withdraw and pay taxes on the entire account within five years. The new law would be effective January 1, 2013.
