Included in the year end spending Omnibus the last Congress enacted just before adjourning for the last time was the SECURE 2.0 Act of 2022, a bill focused on tax related retirement plan issues.  While the bill did not have anything quite as disruptive as the original 2019 SECURE Act's repeal of the stretch IRA, there are a lot of provisions in this bill that will be of interest to individuals and businesses.  Like the original SECURE Act, this bill had wide bipartisan support as it made its way through Congress and is meant to encourage an increase in private retirement savings.

This course provides a comprehensive analysis of the SECURE 2.0 Act of 2022, which is part of a much larger legislative package entitled the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023. The principal focus of the Act is to expand retirement coverage and increase retirement savings. As such, the Act has many important changes relating to IRAs and qualified plans.

This long-awaited new legislation alters the landscape of retirement planning for taxpayers of all ages, and there are changes taking immediate effect in January 2023. Make sure you are up-to-date with the latest information available in order to effectively advise your clients on these important changes. In addition, this guidance will be of particular relevance to practitioners’ own retirement planning.
