During this one-hour webinar we will look at the changes brought to IRAs and HSAs in the CARES Act.  Second, we will examine the new IRA/HSA tax filing deadlines in the IRS Notice 2020-18.  And Third we will look at the continued difficulties with the SECURE Act on inherited IRAs.

The due date for filing Federal income tax returns and making Federal income tax payments due April 15, 2020, is automatically postponed to July 15, 2020.  This extends the contribution deadlines for IRAs and creates potential reporting changes on 5498s.
