Financial Planning Tip (s) –
SECURE Act is Signed at the Finish Line of the Year
As mentioned here in our preview post, with a stroke of a pen on the Saturday before the Christmas week, the SECURE ACT (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement) – Wow that is a mouthful!
- Age 72 RMD, up from the confusing 70.5
- Non-Spouse 10 Year Mandatory distributions of Inherited IRA – Mandating taxes by beneficiary
Tons of planning techniques and lots more to the law, but these again are the biggies!
Capital Market Comments –
FED Pauses and Markets Yawn… Finally
The FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) led by Jerome Powell and company, FINALLY were able to not lower rates and market participants accepted it… Shhh, lets keep it our secret..haha
Have a Great Day – Talk to you at the end of January!
