Recording and Slides are Available Here


This presentation explains the important changes that have recently been made to retirement accounts related provisions for individuals adversely affected by COVID-19. This includes the technical, compliance, and operational requirements that apply. Extensive handouts are included!

The IRS recently issued Notice 2020-18: Relief for Taxpayers Affected by Ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic. This Notice provides relief, from tax deadlines, to affected taxpayers who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 emergency. The IRS defines Affected Taxpayers, for the purpose of this relief, as any person with a Federal income tax payment or a Federal income tax return due April 15, 2020. Under this relief, the due date for filing Federal income tax returns and making Federal income tax payments due April 15, 2020, is automatically postponed to July 15, 2020. Affected Taxpayers do not have to file Forms 4868 or 7004 (both applications for extensions to file applicable returns), as this is a postponement and not an extension.

Transactions addressed in this content-packed webinar include:

  • IRA Contribution Deadline
  • Deadline for Paying the 10% Early Distribution Penalty
  • Deadline for Making Employer Contributions
  • Transactions for which no Postponement Relief Is Provided Under Notice 2020-18

In addition, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law on March 27, 2020 and includes provisions that are intended to provide relief for the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Provisions include:

  • Waiver of RMD for 2020
  • Waiver for certain 2019 RMDs not taken in 2019
  • Rollovers of 2020 RMDs That Are No Longer RMDs
  • One Year Extension for Beneficiaries Subject to the 5-Year Rule
