Leveraging a Roth IRA in the Midst of a Market Drawdown
As of April 26, 2020, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down approximately 20% from its February 12th all-time high - a significant recovery, after being down more than 38% from its all-time high on March 23rd. In the midst of this market decline - the fastest in history - now may be the perfect time to fund a Roth IRA and/or take advantage of a Roth IRA conversion. Establishing or adding to this type of account could help maximize wealth and add flexibility to one’s retirement, tax, and long-term estate plan.

The Incentives and Disincentives of Charitable Giving
President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of December 2017 (TCJA) into law approximately two years ago, markedly changing the monetary benefits people derive from their charitable giving. The Federal Estate and Gift Tax Exclusions were increased, new laws involving standard and itemized deductions against personal income emerged, and the notion of Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) was introduced. The provisions of the TCJA forced people to be more thoughtful about how, and how much, they choose to give.

How to Use Qualified Charitable Distributions to Achieve a Win-Win
On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015. One provision benefitting seniors that was made “permanent” is the Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). I say permanent with tongue-in-cheek, of course, since very little Congress does can ever be considered permanent, particularly when it comes to tax legislation.

Charitable Contributions from IRAs
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 first allowed taxpayers age 70½ and older to make tax-free charitable donations directly from their IRAs. By making a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from an IRA directly to a qualified charitable organization, older IRA owners were allowed to exclude up to $100,000 annually from gross income. These gifts, also known as "charitable IRA rollovers," would otherwise be taxable IRA distributions.

Two Ways to Roll over Retirement Funds
In general, a rollover is the movement of funds from one retirement savings vehicle to another. You may want, or need, to make a rollover for any number of reasons--your employment situation has changed, you want to switch investments, or you've received death benefits from your spouse's retirement plan. There are two possible ways that retirement funds can be rolled over--the 60-day rollover and the trustee-to-trustee transfer.
