Gifts of Retirement Assets

You can designate Avon Old Farms as beneficiary of a retirement account such as an IRA, 401K, or Keogh, saving your estate up to 80% in taxes. With the enactment of the SECURE Act in January of 2020, non-spousal heirs are required to withdraw all of the assets of an IRA within ten years. Depending on the level of assets within your IRA this can have significant tax implications to your heirs. Please consult your financial planner for advice to minimize your tax obligations and ensure your estate is managed effectively.
