Episode 65: Tax Planning & the Death of a Spouse- Part 2

Here are just a handful of the things that you’ll learn:


In this week’s episode, we are continuing the discussion on the unfortunate circumstances of a spouse passing away. A myriad of financial decisions need to be made during an already difficult time, and it’s important to understand the implications of many of those decisions. Last week, we talked about the step-up in basis rule as well as the widow’s penalty. This week, we are going to cover what happens when a spouse inherits an IRA and the choices that he or she may have when it comes to inheriting a deceased spouse’s retirement accounts.
