Do You Understand All of the
Planning Opportunities that
Roth IRA Conversions Offer in 2020?
Help Your Clients Maximize the Benefits from Roth Conversions!
Roth IRA conversions have always had the potential to unlock hidden value. However, given the current market conditions and the no RMD rule in 2020, there are some very unique planning opportunities available - - but only if you know what they are and leverage them for your clients!
Before the SECURE Act, it was perhaps simple nominal conversions to take advantage of a low-income year. However, the SECURE Act expands the impact of Roth IRA conversions beyond a quantitative arbitrage game to a strategic estate planning set of issues that should be of interest to all lawyers, trust officers, insurance and financial advisors and CPAs.
That’s why you will want to be sure to join us and nationally renowned CPA and IRA planning expert, Robert S. Keebler, CPA/PFS, MST, AEP (Distinguished), CGMA, for a special presentation entitled, “Tactical and Strategic Roth Conversions in 2020”.
