“It’s the ticking time bomb for the kids of the IRA owner,” explains Elder Law attorney, Julian Gray.
That ticking bomb? The new SECURE Act that went into law on January 1st, 2020 as part of a $1.4 Trillion spending bill, which affects anyone in the country with a retirement plan. Julian Gray sat down with Sparkt’s Marty Griffin to explain this new law and how it may affect you:
The SECURE Act, which stands for “Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement,” aims to increase access to tax-advantaged accounts, making it easier and more cost-effective for people like small business owners or part-time workers to invest in their (or their employees’) retirement.
But with every new law comes new challenges, and Gray urges people to consult with an attorney or financial adviser to make sure they understand the new law and, most importantly, how it will affect their taxes. “We want people to be prepared so there’s not surprises,” says Gray. “You don’t want the kids to come into the office someday, whether it’s the lawyer’s office or the financial planner’s office, and say ‘we had no idea that we were going to have these taxes thrust on us.”
