Estate Planning Red Flag – You missed the 60-day IRA rollover deadline
Abstract: IRAs and employer plans can provide valuable estate planning benefits. If a person holds an IRA for life, his or her children can stretch out distributions over their lifetimes, maximizing the IRA’s tax-deferred growth and preserving more wealth for loved ones. If a person receives a distribution from an IRA or employer plan, he or she can preserve these benefits by rolling over the funds into a new IRA or plan within 60 days. This brief article explains what happens if the 60-day deadline is missed.
