The paradigm shift from life expectancy distributions to a 10-year distribution is at its core a mathematical problem. Therefore, quantitative driven strategies can mitigate the impact of lost deferral. These strategies include Roth conversions, life insurance, and utilizing charitable remainder trusts. 

Moreover, tried and true strategies to mitigate built-in income tax consequences of "inherited" IRAs gain importance with a 10-year rule. For example, state tax-exempt IRA trusts along with tactical planning at both the beneficiary designation form level and the trust level. In any case, there is a critical need for lawyers and planners to understand the mathematics.

This is not a class designed to help wealthy clients, but rather will provide advice for the mass-affluent. Properly applied these strategies will provide tremendous value and demonstrate expertise.
