When a client dies with an IRA or qualified plan the estate’s advisors must balance the tax law with a variety of financial and property law issues. In this fact-paced class Bob will address the critical questions that must be reviewed from the first family meeting to the final retitling of the IRA account.   Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the tax aspects of IRA planning and the opportunities to preserve retirement funds after death.
