N-2020-06: Relief for Reporting Required Minimum Distributions for IRAs for 2020

24 Jan 2020 2:27 PM | Anonymous

Under pre-amended law, by January 31st, the financial institutions would have had to notify IRA owners who turned 70½ in 2020 about the required minimum distribution (RMD) which would have needed to be made for 2020.  The SECURE Act changed the age triggering the RMD requirement from 70 and ½ to 72, so these notices are no longer due under the amended law.   Notice 2020-06 proves that if a RMD statement is provided for 2020 to an IRA owner who will attain age 70½ in 2020, the IRS will not consider such statement to be incorrect, provided that the financial institution notifies the IRA owner no later than April 15, 2020, that no RMD is due for 2020.

Notice 2020-06 will be in IRB: 2020-7, dated February 10, 2020.
