HUGE Difference!! One of the most incorrectly reported transactions is the movement of funds from a Qualified Employer Plan to an IRA and from an IRA to an IRA. The result is the IRA customer getting "love" letters from the IRS with huge bills attached stating they owe thousands of dollars in taxes on an IRA transaction. In fact, they may owe nothing. It usually involves a financial institution's reporting error on either the distribution or contribution side - or both. While the terms "rollover" and "transfer" are sometimes used interchangeably in the retirement industry, the actual coding and reporting of these transactions should not always be tied to the verbiage, but to the transaction itself. 2013 IRA Cost of Living Adjustments have just been released. Don't miss this Webinar to get the most up-to-date information on IRS Regulations.
This is a "must-attend" Webinar for anyone - even remotely - involved in IRAs including, frontline, back office, call center, investment department, and trust department personnel.
You are encouraged to bring a sample of the IRA forms your financial institution is currently using for your review during the session including: IRA Contribution forms, Distribution Forms and Rollover Review/Certification Forms.
