2021 RMD Requirements You Need to Know
We’re experiencing a high than normal volume of calls related to the Fair Market Value (FMV) letters that were recently sent to our clients with an IRA Annuity. In these letters, your Insurance Company reports the Fair Market Value of your annuity contract as of December 31 of the prior tax year and the required minimum distribution (RMD) amount they’ve calculated for 2021.
Many of the questions we’ve received are concerning the SECURE Act change and 2021 RMD Requirements, many have asked whether or not the CARES Act waiver of RMDs includes the calendar year 2021.
