Required Minimum Distributions
For 401(k)s And IRAs For 2020
The bipartisan COVID-19 stimulus
bill just signed by
President Trump includes welcome tax relief for retirees: The required
minimum distribution rules for Individual Retirement Accounts and
401(k)s are waived for 2020. That means that instead of taking money
out this year, retirees can keep their investments growing. The RMD
waiver applies to 403(b) accounts, SEP IRAs, and SIMPLE IRAs. This is a
repeat of the 2009 RMD holiday during the Great Recession.
The rules for who needed to take 2020 RMDs were already funky because
of the SECURE ACT, passed in late December, which changed the age
triggering RMDs from 70 ½ to 72, effective Jan. 1, 2020.
