IRAs Part 2 - How to Move Money Correctly Between Retirement Plans

The terms "rollovers" and "transfers" are the most misused and abused words in the whole IRA dictionary. They are very often used interchangeably when explaining how to move retirement plan funds. You might think "What's the big deal if I say 'rollover' or 'transfer'? It's not the words that come out of your mouth that are the problem. It's how it's coded in the system and reported to the IRS that becomes a huge problem.

Customers and clients are getting letters and substantial bills from the IRS saying they owe taxes on money that was moved from one financial institution to another and one of the banks did not report the transaction correctly to the IRS.
It is not rocket science. It is a 3-piece puzzle with questions that must be asked and answered:

  1. What kind of plan is it coming from?
  2. What kind of plan is it going into?
  3. Does the customer have the ability to use the funds in between?

Once you truly get the answers to these questions, the reporting of the movement of funds defaults according to the IRS regulation.
