The Income Taxation of IRAs and IRD Payable to Trusts after SECURE
With the shortened payout rule under the SECURE Act, lawyers, CPAs and financial planners will all need to have a better understanding of the taxation of trusts under Subchapter J of the Internal Revenue Code.
Subchapter J governs how taxable income flows from an estate or trust to its beneficiaries. However, in the world of IRAs, this is a complex and often misunderstood process. This confusion occurs because of the difference between “income” and “principal” for fiduciary accounting under the UPIA and “principal” and “income” under the federal tax law.
Accordingly, from time-to-time all of us need an update on the inner workings of these two disparate provisions of the law. In the past, because of the longer life expectancy payout rules, these issues had a much lower materiality. With the new 10-year payout, a tremendous amount of income will be paid to trusts and it will be up to the trust’s advisors to develop a plan to retain or distribute that income.
In this class we will address the following:
- Brief overview of the SECURE Act

- Understand the impact of the separate share rules
